rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

I have very few preconceived notions about Borolo other than almost everyone i speak to….loves it! I suppose i do feel nervous reviewing a Borolo , what if I didn't like it!
I had thought that most Borolos were quite week on the punch so i was surprised to see 14% and it does in actual fact deliver. this is a very earthy well balanced wine. There is an initial presence of cherries, strawberries and then it becomes herby with a taste of fennel and. i love this part of the wine, when you think it is all about the fruit and then along comes the herb and then a quick taste of black tea and soft pepper. it ends with a feint introduction of chocolate and has a medium length tannin. For all Borolo lovers…you will not be disappointed!
Bottoms up!

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.
