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

I was absolutely enthralled with excitement after reading all about the Bonny Doon Vineyard in Natalies book and knew that one day i had to track this wine down in my local liquor store and prepare to treat myself. I believe back then that i truly had to brake the bank to enjoy my sup, and i felt so "Snobby" it was great! Here we are many years later and although i still feel a touch of decadence when ever i purchase and buy a bottle, i love knowing that i shall never be disappointed!
A Rosé however, well this is a hard sell for me, i usually find rosés a bit too much like pop, refreshing on a summers day and nothing else. Well Bonny Doon delivers what i had been looking for , a delicious rosé that was dry, deliciously balanced acidity to accompany an array of vegetable dishes. wonderful light cherries, strawberries, raspberries and a hint of citrus. Usually made only of red grapes, this rosé has 2 white grapes in its combination which releases a great grounding mineral aroma! the length of this wine is perfect , a good longevity but not overpowering!
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.
