Reviews and Ratings

Erin rated this wine as 2/100
The name of this second-label Shiraz from Hugh Hamilton shares the trademark playfulness of his other wines – e.g., “The Villain,” “The Scoundrel,” and “Jekyll & Hyde” – albeit in a much more friendly fashion. This bright and playful Shiraz is named for the winery’s loyal dog, Jimmy. It’s full bodied, softly textured and ready to drink, sporting ripe black fruit and a touch of peppery spice.

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.
