Cost: $22 (Direct from winery)
Date Tasted: September 5th, 2009
Tasting Notes: This is the most popular wine that Cowichan Valley producer Godfrey-Brownell makes and its most distinctive. A blend of Marechal Foch and Gamay Noir, this wine has a dark garnet colour and dark fruit nose with roasted marshmallow notes. A full-bodied wine with medium tannins that will make an interesting change to the more familiar Meritage blends widely available and should pair nicely with full-flavour dishes like steak.
Named for the proprietor's uncle, this is an interesting blend well worth the drive to visit the winery. - LC
