More Wine Reviews and Ratings

Eileen Sheridan rated this wine as 94/100
Holly Bruns rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

Rich aromas of banana, coconut, butter and caramel permeate the nose, with a hint of lemon lingering in the background. This is a full-bodied drink balanced out by some crisp acidity and a fairly long, round, spicy finish.
Stefanie reviewed this wine as follows:

Gift from the geraces for Christmas
The nose shows attractive aromas of banana, melon and peaches, along with hints of caramel, vanilla and oak. It's dry, vibrant, and packed with fruit.

  Best Books of the Year

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.
