Pulled 'La Petite Paille' 2010 Cuvée Noir out of bale of wines at Swirl, a Yaletown store dedicated to selling British Columbia wines only and educating palates. Owner Jeff Wong was conducting a small in-store tasting while I was there.
Wine is produced by Little Straw Vineyards in West Kelowna, owned by 6 people including Susan Ursuliak.
This is an interesting blend of Syrah, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir and Blau Frankish from BC VQUA Okanagan Valley.
