Ursa Major Sabor a Mí, 2017
Red blend of whole cluster Syrah with Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot from the Okanagan Valley. The inspiration for the name of this wine came from the title of a Luis Miguel song that translates to “my taste” in Spanish, a reference to his lover. This is a rare and beautiful wine from a great local winery, and is currently unavailable for purchase anymore. Notes of blackberry, black currant, raspberry, baking spice and liquorice with medium body and soft tannins. This rich, yet surprisingly juicy red wine pairs perfectly with braised beef; developed tannin level balances the savory quality of the meat wonderfully and notes of black pepper complement the dishes layered seasoning.
