Mission Hill Quatrain 2009 (British Columbia) Add to ...

  • Rating 92
  • Year 2009
  • Price $45 in B.C.

A powerful red, this combines the Bordeaux grapes merlot, cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc with peppery syrah. It’s a mouthful and marvellously layered, showing plum and berries laced with espresso, vanilla, cigar, earth and spice. It would benefit from five to 10 years in the cellar but pays immediate rewards. Decant it if possible. Also available elsewhere through missionhillwinery.com.
