WineDiva's Review

Fresh, outstanding, opulent.
Born of the best barrels from the best plots of estate vineyards in the Okanagan and Similkameen valleys, Mt. Boucherie's pinnacle wine called Contessa is a blend of Merlot (38%), Syrah (32%), Cab Franc (23%), Zinfandel (5%) and Malbec (2%). It was aged in French, American and Hungarian oak barrels for 22 months; 30% new.
It's an outstanding and opulent wine inky and intense and very Amarone-like. Expect dried strawberries and cherries, plum cake and licorice, velvety chocolate and vanilla liqueur aromas. The freshness here is notable despite it being a wine with structure and power. Flavours on the palate echo the nose and it has a lengthy finish trailing cocoa powder, leather and tobacco.

Pairs great with Gone Crackers Canadian Chedder & Chive
