C.C. Jentsch The Chase 2018 B.C.

This has consistently been one of the best value wines produced in B.C. Particularly if you shop wisely! The last few vintages were Cabernet dominant but the 2018 is Merlot dominant which means it’s a softer, more plush take on a classic Bordeaux blend. The medium boded red is juicy and delicious with a generous finish and a lovely aroma of blackberries. I still think it overdelivers for the price when you’re shopping for wine to pair with pizza. C.C. Jentsch has won awards for some superb premium wines and those looking for a bargain can count on The Chase to please your palate too.
