Recline Ridge - Just Being Frank 5/5
Wow. I love blends, I do, I do, but without a doubt this single varietal wins my heart every time.
The only thing I can compare it to is when you have a really good merlot. What I mean by that is the direct punchlines of a single varietal show up along with all those specific intricacies, delicacies and just plain flavour on the one hit wonder.
Have you ever tasted a Pinot that was too light? A Merlot without enough body? Well here is your answer. Blaufrankish.
I have poured this wine for friends, for myself and for people who didn't like wine and they all said... 'This is really good'. I concur.
The wine maker is doing an outstanding job. She is fantastic. If you get a chance to ever drop by their lovely patio and tasting room, it's well worth your time.
As a Shuswap resident, this is absolutely my favourite local wine. Plus, if you sign up for their mailing list, they occasionally have case sales.
