While we normally try and sneak out of town any chance we get, this long weekend we are staying put and enjoying some time with family and friends in Vancouver. Our days will include workouts, organizing the house, time with our kidlets and evenings with our friends. Those evenings with friends will include wine (no surprises there!) and some playful long weekend vibes with Sumac Ridge.
Sumac Ridge makes uncomplicated and unpretentious wines for uncomplicated and unpretentious moments.
Situated in the Okanagan Valley, Sumac Ridge Estate Winery has been making consistent and delicious wines for 38 years and it has recently had a makeover with this new look! To celebrate, Sam and I had some fun playing games and sipping on their 2018 Sauvignon Blanc and 2017 Cabernet Merlot. These are simple, yet tasty, wines that are perfect for enjoying with friends and family- so we did and so we will continue to do!
Some of my favourite childhood memories are of playing cards with my grandmother. I think it’s time to learn some fun new (adult) card games to play over some glasses of wine!
Tasting Notes for the Sumac Ridge 2018 Sauvignon Blanc:
Lively and fragrant aromas of freshly cut grass, gooseberry and lemon are followed by flavours of grapefruit and citrus and zest making for a nice clean finish. The Sumac Ridge Sauvignon Blanc is a true testament to the fresh and crisp wines from the Okanagan Valley.
Tasting Notes for the Sumac Ridge 2017 Cabernet Merlot:
The Sumac Ridge Cabernet Merlot is a blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc and is quickly becoming a crowd-favourite. Tons of blackberries, cherries, toasty notes, and some spice on the nose. The palate has flavours of dark fruits, baking spices and a hint of mocha. The acidity is balanced and the tannins are medium with a medium finish.
I hope you all enjoy your long weekend and that you get to spend time with those true gems in your life!
