Sumac Ridge

On our way south towards Osoyoos, we stopped in Summerland to visit Sumac Ridge, a winery I knew from living in Vancouver and often buying their wines. This tasting occurred just after I'd been diagnosed with strep throat, so feel free to disregard any tasting notes. For those interested, Sumac Ridge has 115 acres of their own grapes which they call Black Sage Vineyards.

Stellar's Jay Brut - dry, quite light, nice.

Pinot Blanc '03 - 6 months in oak. Buttery, dry. Really good.

Black Sage Vineyard Cabernet-Franc '02 - Olive nose, rich flavor. Smooth finish.

Meritage '01 - Very mild. Short finish. Sumac Ridge was the first winery in Canada to make a meritage.

Vintage Pipe '99 - Port style. Not too sweet, good cabernet flavor.
