Oh yum! What a luscious, beautiful pinot, packed with fleshy cherry notes. It's satin smooth and feels like liquid lingerie ... seductive. Perfect for dinner parties and romantic dinners when you want the answer to be yes.

Pinot Noir food pairings: beef bourguignon.

Mark rated this wine as 95/100
Sarah Goodman reviewed this wine as follows:

big yes
really likes- for susan's bday dinner @ alex
Medium-ruby colour with an attractive nose featuring smoky cherry, red plum, underbrush and pomegranate. Dry with a lively, smoky fruit core featuring an attractive interplay between sour- and black-cherry nuances. Ripe, chewy tannins bring balance. Cellar it 2-3 years, or enjoy it now.

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.
