This wine from Mission Hill in the Okanagan Valley has a spicy, gamy character on the nose—think plums and leather and the flavors are enjoyable, albeit a bit watery. Blackberry and chocolate mingled with spices would make more of an impact with more structure and a bolder array of fruit. Overall, the wine has pleasant flavors but needs more personality. Imported by Mark Anthony Wine Merchants.
