Jeremy Sprott rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Loads of ripe raspberry and strawberry, with some pepper and a touch of mint on the nose. The berries, pepper and the herbaceous elements from the nose come through on the palate.
A fantastically big wine that isn't overpowering. A nice addition with a grilled prime rib.
Gotta love this rich, generous Zinfandel with its abundant aromas and flavours of pomegranate, cherry and bumbleberry jam with a touch of briary complexity. Big and mouthfilling, it packs a wallop and will delight. Source: Vintages Wine Panel, June 2013

  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.
