Availability: Wine club only. Direct from the winery here
Cost: $25.90 including taxes

Date Tasted: February 24th, 2017

Tasting Notes: This Okanagan Valley-sourced wine is one of the winery's two regional Malbecs it produced for the 2014 vintage. The variety and vintage are the only characteristics the two wines share, with the Similkameen edition showcasing a robust, full-bodied profile and the Okanagan Malbec presenting a lean, masculine version of the French grape with blue fruits, smoky tannins and meaty tones. 
A solid pairing for rare to medium-rare steaks. Drink now-2018.
