Sunrock Vineyards Illumina 2015

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaA gloriously warm vintage has beefed up what is already a beefy wine, one that is roughly two-thirds zinfandel and one-third shiraz. There is a pureness of fruit here but not raisins or prunes, just juicy red/black fruits with a bunch of spice. That appears better balanced than the 2013 but it is not without power and an overly friendly blackberry, vanilla, chocolate finish. I like this style with baby back ribs off the barbecue.Tasted: 13 November 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 39.99 private wine stores Producer: Sunrock VineyardsDistributors: Arterra Wines Canada
