Darlene Myers CAPS Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This was my first experience with the Bonarda grape and I found it to be delicious. Cedar dark fruits, blackberry and a savory floral note. Fruit forward, distinct tannins and a hint of wood make for a complex wine. I will definitely buy this wine again.
Aromas of ripe berries and rich black fruit, mocha and toast. The palate is quite lovely with good weight and flavour intensity. Made in a very approachable and friendly style, this is a great indicator of the increasing quality and growing popularity of Bonarda. A fun and exciting wine that will add some flair to your next barbecue. Source: Vintages Wine Panel, Oct. 2012

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.
