Natalie's Score: 90/100

Love the cedar-spice notes that wreathe the dark red berry aromas on the nose. Layers of supple, full-bodied flavor. Terrific balance and length. This blend or cuvée is matured in oak for about a year and leads with syrah. Attractive black plums and cedar spice on the finish. Decant 1-2 hours.

Syrah food pairings: lamb cutlets, chicken, beef bourguignon, Tourtière.

King rated this wine as 88/100
Offering up beautiful aromatics of black raspberry and black currant that is intermixed with notions of spice-box, smoke, and meat qualities, this medium+ bodied 2010 has a layered, rich texture, solid concentration, and a chewy, tannic structure that should age well. Give bottles a year or two, and then drink over the following 5-8 years. Score: 90. Source: Jeb Dunnuck, therhonereport.com, Sept. 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.
