Juicy, smooth, full-bodied balanced. Very pleasant with attractive dark fruit and just enough smoky oak. Great with steak or hamburgers.

Named Varietal Blends-Red food pairings: grilled meat.

Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Notes of cherry, currant and spice. The finish lingers nicely.
This blend of merlot, syrah and cabernet franc over-delivers at the price, a plush, dark plum-scented wine with sweet oak accents. The flavors are cool and fine, the tannins possessing a peppery bite that screams for a chary cut of meat off the grill. Score 89. Source: Wine and Spirits Magazine, Dec. 2012

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.
