Reviews and Ratings

Aromas offer a combination of mature and youthful notes, including cherry, cranberry, mocha, autumn leaves, and cured meat. Dry with lovely cranberry and cherry fruit up front and soft, nicely resolved tannins. On the mid-palate, there’s a hotbed of spices and dried fruits that hints at the wine’s maturity. The finish is quite lovely, with pretty, mature fruit carrying right through to the end. Source: Vintages Wine Catalogue.

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.
