A Gold Medal Wine…to Go with Canada’s First Gold Medal!

So exciting today, with Canada winning its first gold medal at the Olympics!

To celebrate, my favourite wine — Chateauneuf du Pape — and tonight the 1995 from Clos des Papes. Amazing wine…15 years old, some maturity, but still seems young and fresh in a lot of ways. Excellent colour, absolutely stunning nose of ripe, herbal cherries and the taste…my wife said it was perfect, and she might be right. The fruit is completely ripe, but not jammy or grapey…not to herbal, but enough herbs to add complexity, and it just rolls over your tongue with the smoothness..outstanding!

So proud to be a Canadian today, and a Vancouverite to boot…Go, Canada, Go!
