Reviews and Ratings

Mark Cochrane Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Nice light ruby coloured Pinot Noir with flavours of cherry and pleasant acidity. Medium body with soft tannins. Easy drinking on it's own
Joe Hache Prince Edward Count rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

This particular Pinot Noir didn't have the typical barnyard characteristics ...it did have the typical pale colour but had light cherry aroma on the nose with a fresh cherry flavour and soft lingering finish.
Pale ruby colour; light cherry and spice aromas; sweet fresh cherry flavour, soft 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.
