Sunshine calls for a glass of white ☀️ FYI this is @lindseydonovan

A perfect blend of ripe strawberry, red liquorice, violets and Oak spice, Backyard Vineyards 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is structured, rich and intensely complex. Try a bottle this weekend with a well marbled ribeye or mushroom beef stroganoff. #backyardgossip
New from Pop & Pour: It’s Go TIME! That’s not a passionate locker-room speech; it’s the actual name of the wine, my first-ever bottles adorned with an NHL logo. Makes me wish I wasn’t a lifelong Capitals fan...
The Short Version: I legitimately enjoy theme wines and thus approached this unique Okanagan/Calgary Flames collaborative effort, available at a Saddledome near you, from my natural perspective of a wine-mad pro hockey nut. The results live up to their price tag and are best sipped watching the 3M line dominate possession and Dougie Hamilton continue his quiet quest for a Norris. Bonus trivia: a “Cabernet Merlot” does NOT have to contain Cabernet Sauvignon (though this one does, in minor part).
The Long Version: Currently up and waiting for you on popandpour.ca! Now to start work on my life’s newly-revealed mission of a #WAwine
formal collaboration. There may literally be no other man for this job but me.

Read all about how Cassini Cellars began in a new article on Year In Wine - link in bio. Plus a write-up on two of their newer releases.
Although I allowed the 2014 Nobilus to breathe in the decanter for two hours before completing my tasting notes, I do not feel that this was necessary; it was drinking very well as soon as the bottle was opened. This is a full bodied, deep ruby Merlot with aromas of black cherry, plum, cedar, dried fig and a hint of anise. I found this wine to have medium acidity with medium plus, fine tannins. The palate is rich with black cherries, plum jam, blackberries, vanilla, clove and a note of eucalyptus. The winery suggests that the Nobilus can cellar for 5-10 years, but I think most people will have difficulty keeping their hands off this wine for that long!
We are excited for the upcoming Dine Around and Stay in Victoria, and not in small part because our very own @bartierbros
is paired with the always excellent @agriusrestaurant.
The wines of Bartier Bros are all Natural, produced with Wild Yeast and left largely on their own. This restrained method of winemaking results in a Riesling with 🍊🍋and fennel aromas; minerality and fruitiness combine on the palate with focused sugar and acid balance, making this wine very fresh and versatile.
Agrius has chosen to pair this with their Pork Loin with Sauerkraut, Kale, and Confit Potatoes.
With a menu focused on organics, this is truly the perfect pairing!
