Darlene Myers CAPS Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Lately, old vine Zinfandels have been my go to wine. Food friendly and easy to drink all by themselves, and this one didn't disappoint. Rich dark berry flavors with spice, pepper, vanilla and toasted oak. Can't wait to try this one with BBQ ribs.
Sylvain rated this wine as 90/100
This is a dark purple wine with a heady nose of jammy dark berries, which flow into robust flavors of black raspberry, blackberry and black cherry. The finish has an oak signature and comes in at 14.5% alcohol. This wine has the power and structure to stand up to any heavily spiced dish, especially anything in a tomato based sauce. This wine was great. Score: 88 Source: Norm Bentley, pineisland-eagle.com

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.
