Mocha-dark-chocolate rich with fleshy cherries and berries. Smooth, supple, and medium-bodied. Lovely sipping wine that will take you through an entire evening.

Malcolm Lamont WSET Adv rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Inky dark in colour. Decent character, and NOT a simple wine making it good value at $12.95. Candied fruit turning into jammy red fruit on the nose, with smokey oak coming through as well. Definitely full on the palate for a Pinot Noir, and a nice wine. Looking forward to having it at my sister's wedding this summer!!
Travis Oke rated this wine as 80/100 with the following review:

This smells too sweet from the very beginning. Lot's of cooked berries, almost jam (hee hee I almost typed ham). Maybe I needed a better food pairing like a roasted chicken?
I wish George would just stay home in Beaujolais and make great wines from Gamay grapes - I would be happy with that.

  Best Books of the Year

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.
