More Wine Reviews and Ratings

Dave Meehan reviewed this wine as follows:

Actually a 2008
it delivers exotic spice, roasted grain, orange peel, mineral undertones and a hint of smoke while unveiling a bewitching complexity of bready lees, toasted nut, vanilla custard and ripe stone fruit that fan out and caress the palate with a lingering wisp of toffee as an afterthought leading to an appealing finish. Artfully crafted with a deft handling of oak and sustained by a marked acidity, this `07 is destined to strut its alluring features with authority for the next 3-5 years. 100 % Barrel aged in New French for 14 months. Barrel fermented for 3 weeks.

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.
