Reviews and Ratings

Marco Giovanetti rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Aromas of dry and roasted black fruits with heady nuances of black earth and balsamic notes. Of these, mint, eucalyptus and black licorice. In addition, the signature animal notes of Monastrell are very present such as leather and various
other animal notes. In the mouth, the wine is dry and corpulent with lots of preserved black fruit character and a remarkable earthiness and minerality. Fleshy tannins and a medium acidity. The wine presents a delicious smoky and medium lingering finale

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.
