Marco Giovanetti rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

On the nose rich layers of ripe leafy cassis fruit, black plums, red cherries withsubtle nuances of gunpowder, wood, balsamic, red and green pepper, cured meat and dry spices. In the mouth, full body, round and ample with meaty tannis. Flavors remind me of raspberry jelly, dark chocolate and nuances of smoked grilled red peppers. A very spicy and generous finale with a longlasting finish that brings to mind dry thyme. This wine is ready to drink now or could be be kept for the next 7-10 years

Red, White & Drunk all over by Natalie MacLean

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
