Tonight was our first evening in Vancouver. The restaurant we chose for dinner had 2007 Burrowing Owl Cabernet Sauvignon as well as their Chardonnay. We ordered the Cab but I thought it was rather herbacious and lacking in fruit concentration. Reminded me of a Niagara cab! However, it wasn't mentioned by anyone as a wine to seek out, so I won't attach too much significance to this trial.


I hope you have a great time in Vancouver. One of my favourite cities. Your impressions of the Burrowing Owl Cabernet Sauvignon is pretty spot on. Every vintage I've had has been just like that, and they don't improve with age. As someone else mentioned, their Cabernet Franc on the other hand is a consistent performer and worth seeking out. The Syrah sometimes shines, and in some years disappoints.
