Here’s a fine start from a new Okanagan winery southeast of Kelowna near the top of Spiers Road (hence the name). It’s medium-bodied, with jammy-berry flavour yet a lean elegance that also carries cinnamon, herbs and a hint of vanilla from the oak. There’s a moderate tannic backbone for added structure, too. Pair it with light red-meat dishes or roast poultry. Available at private wine stores in Vancouver and on Vancouver Island as well as through the winery (www.spierheadwinery.com).
