More Wine Reviews and Ratings

Mark Britton rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

In my opinion this is still the best value wine your going to find in the Ontario market. Rich red and black fruit dominate, but the wine is powerful enough to hold up to a variety of foods as you would expect with a higher end Grenache. At $20 - $30 this wine get's score in the 80's, but at $8.95 it is a 90.

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.
