Reviews and Ratings

Liz Pietrzak rated this wine as 95/100
Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

This Cabernet/Shiraz blend is really something special. It is medium to full bodied, with integrated aromas of cherry, black currant, black cherry and vanilla. It is smooth, silky, with refined tannins and a nice long finish. It took 30 min to an hour for the wine to decant and to show its full might. It can be drunk now or cellared for the next 10 or more years. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, no wonder why they disappeared so quickly. Glad I have a few for THAT special occasion. Tasted Dec/09.

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.
