rated this wine as 91/100
rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Screw-top. Made from Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, and Merlot and hint of Gamay Noir. Bright red fruit aromas turn to dark fruit as it warms up in the glass (this was pulled directly from the cellar and opened). Dark berries, blackberry aromas with hints of oak. Blackberry with hints of licorice and spice on the palate. Light- to medium-bodied with ripe fruit and tannins, this is a smooth and easy drinking red that is ready to drink now. Enjoyed with vegetable spinach lasagna. Tasted Jan/2012.
rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

A real blend of heritage grapes with some Gamay and Pinot Noir thrown in. It is close to being too sweet and close to being as light as nouveau but it was delicious with roast veg and roast chicken. Predominantly raspberry flavours.
reviewed this wine as follows:

lile home made wine
This wine is smooth and easy drinking. It’s full of blackberry and raspberry flavours with just a hint of spice. It was aged in French oak barrels just long enough to bring all the elements together. All the grapes were grown on our vineyards using sustainable agricultural methods.

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.
