2009 merlot from a BC winery, it was meh.
Then I finished with a Bombay Sapphire and sprite, which was quite nice. The BC liquor board stopped carrying Plymouth Gin, which makes me very sad I remarked to the lady behind the counter that they were killing me by always discontinuing the really good stuff. She said, "Well not really, it's based on sales," implying that because everybody buys something it must be good. I replied offhandedly, "Yeah, but everybody buys crap, that's the problem." She gave me the evil eye.
It's true though; why else would Bacardi be so popular? That crap is barely fit for peeling paint.
