Reviews and Ratings

Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Black cherry, plum skin, chocolate, Kenya AA coffee, spice, and cigar tobacco packed into a nice tight frame. Decant 30 minutes before pouring. 91 Points. (www.ottawawinejournal.com)
Lori Kilmartin - WSET3 Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This juicy fruit forward Cabernet spent 14 months in American oak. The result is silky, opulent tannins, slightly herbaceous, spice and lots of blackberry and black cherry fruit. A very well balanced wine with a long fruit finish. A great bbq wine with burgers or steak! Tasted June 2016
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A rich and opulent Cabernet Sauvignon from the 2014 vintage. Deeply concentrated red fruit with velvety medium tannins, medium acidity, medium plus body. Declared 13.5% ABV. Integrating alcohol. Mocha, cacao, red and black berry with a hint of mint. Drinking well on it's own and ready to pair with gourmet BBQ burgers or grilled pork tenderloin. Tasted Jan 2017. Rated 90/100.

Mary Anne van Gaal rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This juicy cabernet sauvignon is made with grapes from a vineyard located in the foothills of the southern part of the Columbia Valley giving it a surprisingly low sugar amount of 3-4 grams. It was then aged 14 months in oak. Aromas of cherry and light spice with flavours of dark berries and oak. It would pair nicely with roast leg of lamb.
Sharon Prionas rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Aromas of dark fruit and tobacco with a hint of smoke on the nose. The flavours of dark cherry and plum. Well balanced tannins and long finish. Would pair well strong cheeses, braised meats.

(Tasted January 16, 2017)
Sylvain Segard rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

medium ruby. Ripe berries and plums, eucalyptus, mint, cedar box aroma. Juicy mouthfeel of blackberries. Balanced tannins. Lasting juicy berries and acidity. Great with grilled beef or BBQ burgers. Score 88. (S.Segard, Reviewed 15, 2017)

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.
