rated this wine as 95/100 with the following review:

Here is another new Cellier release at the SAQ this week. The SAQ even gave it their love heart sign meaning that they really loved this wine, so there was high expectation when opening this wine.
The colour is a rich red with a decent amount of cling to the glass. I decanted this wine one hour before drinking and it definatly showcases its personality more and more.
On the nose delicious plums and figs followed by herbs of thyme and an earthy note.
On the palate it is packed with red fruits, cherries, strawberries and raspberries which give way to a full spicey mouth. There is a hint of damp wood shavings stepping forward intermittently during the spice. This wine has good length tannins and so yes, I do agree with the SAQ, I too give it a love heart!

Bottoms up!

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.
