More Wine Reviews and Ratings

Tom Vigeant reviewed this wine as follows:

Sombre purple hue. Intense and fairly complex nose with notes of cassis, raisins, pomegranate, spice and wild flowers. Full bodied, firm tannins with a fresh acidity that carries rich and fleshy fruit. Alcohol makes its presence felt, but the wine is not heady. The finish is long and dominated by raisiny and well integrated toasty oak flavours as well as nice tannins that show some decent ageing potential. Drinks well now with braised beef, lamb or robust Mediterranean dishes, but suggest 2014-2015 as ideal drinking window.

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.
