Price $29 in B.C.

Pentage’s flagship red, simply called Pentage, blends the Bordeaux varieties cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and petit verdot with peppery syrah and lively gamay. It’s full-bodied yet sprightly, offering up currant-like fruit infused with toasty oak and bitter chocolate, leading to a dusty-chewy, bright finish. It would be grand with medium-rare steak. Available direct, pentage.com.
