Reviews and Ratings

Bill Dufton rated this wine as 100/100 with the following review:

One word - balanced. Well, maybe more. A bit rounded and full of fruit. With muted tannins. I'd say a standing around sipper.
Derek Kennedy rated this wine as 90/100

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.
