Reviews and Ratings

D rated this wine as 91/100
Brad rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This was a very nice wine, dark, dark beet red in colour with smoky beet fruit aromas, you could also smell the black cherries and a beautiful minty undertone. The wine was rich and full, fruit forward with a long lingering finish. It went perfect with the BBQ filet

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.
