Courtney Flood rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Very plush aromas. You can tell is wine has seen a bit of sun. Ripe berries and dark plums, with a lovely touch of eucalyptus. Great value, just my kind of wine! This one is soft enough to drink on its own, or pair with braised short rib,
Chris Coughlin WSET level 3 grad rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

With it's soft tannins and fruit flavours, this is a drink now Rhone wine, tasty red and dark fruits with some subtle cooking spice.
Doug Mcmillan rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Sweet cherry and new leather aromas are dominant, with a bit of spice and chocolate. There seems to be a little mint as well. The chocolate comes through a bit more in the taste. Nice round tannins, and well balanced, with a soft dark fruit finish. Takes a while to open up, but quite nice. Probably best with port dishes, although it might be nice with turkey as well.
Martha Kelly AIWS, CS rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

This Rhone blend has flavours of red and dark fruit, herbaceous notes, and cinnamon spice. Juicy acidity and soft tannins combine to make this a pleasant sipping wine.
Pair with pizza or casual BBQ.
Drink now; or keep up to 18 months.
Date tasted: August 2014.
Tom Vigeant reviewed this wine as follows:

This classic Southern Rhone blend, dominated by grenache with syrah and mourvedre in support, has a deep ruby hue. Pepper, raspberry, cherry and a touch of cacao on the nose. Supple tannins, full body. The oak is well integrated. The flavours are the same spice and berry notes detected on the nose. Long finish.

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.
