I think I’ve just found my new favorite red to pair with the BBQ this year. This red blend from Evolve Cellars is 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 46% Merlot and 7% Syrah. I like the structure the Cab provides because I think it makes the wine more interesting and enjoyable. The Merlot gives the aroma decidedly plum notes and a juicy texture. A splash of syrah brought some pepper into the glass which pleased my palate. An easy drinking, fresh red that’ll match almost everything off the grill from steak, ribs or sautéed vegetables. This is a well made, medium bodied wine that I recommend you try during B.C. wine month!
