Reviews and Ratings

Big, deep and brooding with milk chocolate, blueberry jelly, fig, licorice and tar. Quite dry with a medium-full body and ripe, youthful, velvety-textured tannins. Bright acidity gives lift and brings some red berry fruit on the palate, and there’s a savoury herbal note on the finish. You could sock this away for 1-3 years, or enjoy 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.
