Now that was fun. Barbara and I decided to do a blind tasting diner. We brought out from the cellar a few bottles of wine from our 2020 Okanagan trip. We were excited.
Dinner would be BBQ Baby Back Ribs, potato wedges and glazed carrots.
To start the event we brought some exotic cheese and coconut shrimp. We decided upon three wines for the blind tasting.
Folonari Valpolicella Ripasso
Corcelettes 2017 Merlot
Skaha Vineyards - Impulsion 2016
The first wine we served was the Corcelettes Merlot. Our wine connoisseurs were amazing. They quickly identifying it as a BC wine and from the Similkameen.
The second selection was the Italian wine from Valpolicella. They knew it was from Europe.
The third wine from Kraze Legzs Skaha vineyards the Impulsion they knew once again it was a BC wine.
All three wines received high praise. To pick a winner it was close. Two votes for the Impulsion and one vote for the other two wines.
It was now time for dinner. Where it seemed like the Impulsion and Corcelettes Merlot were quickly gone.
Just to stir the pot I opened a bottle of Time White Meritage Oh so good! We all like this one!
Dinner was followed by carrot cake and Skaha Vineyards (port-style) Flying Change. A wonder wine.
