Natalie's Score: 88/100

Vintages Wine Panel: Expect notes of cedar, black fruits, spice and herbs on the nose. The palate is elegant, and offers a nice complexity and depth to the fruit along with well-integrated and nicely balanced tannins and acidity. Expertly made and tremendously well-priced wine that really over-delivers on all counts. My note: Savoury, meaty and cedar notes with full-bodied goodness.

Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: grilled meats.

Sarah Tracy rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

I need to preface this review by saying that I do not drink Californian wines, not because I think they are less quality at all but rather because here in Nova Scotia you will pay an arm and a leg for a decent Cali wine.

That said, in this lovely Maritime province of ours you can expect to see this bottle sitting around $20 - $25 (Premier Wines & Spirits) which doesn’t break the bank and makes for a great gifting/ Friday night bottle. Now on to the good stuff, what does it taste like? Well it is like someone punched you in the mouth with a plum and a fist full of peppercorns. In other words, it’s juicy and vivacious with a medium body. Enough soft tannin to give the bottle structure balanced by enough sweetness that this would pair well with the most charbroiled of steaks. I would have to call this a crowd pleaser and you should keep it in mind next time you’re invited to the mother in-laws’ for dinner. Score: 90

Please check out Bogle Vineyard’s website for their portfolio. There is some delicious stuff coming out from that family.

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.
