This week's pick: Cheeky Monkey Cabern-EH

Sweetness: Dry Alcohol: 13% Body: Medium Full
Shelf Life After Bottling:
2-3 years

Region of origin: Okanagan, B.C.

The wine: B.C.’s Cab Sauvignon scoring with bold dark fruit aromas and flavors of black cherry, blackberry, and blackcurrant. Layered with toasty oak, assertive tannins, and a zesty finish like a flavor slap shot right to your palate, this isn’t a wine for the lighthearted. Full-bodied and burly but with undeniable finesse, Wine Kitz Cheeky Monkey Cabern-EH will make you gain respect for B.C. reds.

Food pairings : Excellent with grilled steak, a quality burger, beef short ribs or any other type of red meat. Can also be paired with leg of lamb, portobello mushrooms, and cheddar, cheese, gouda or a mild blue chees.

This is a limited edition release available exclusively at the Orléans Town Centre Wine Kitz location on St. Joseph Blvd. near the corner of Prestone Drive.
