Reviews and Ratings

rated this wine as 83/100 with the following review:

I love the inviting nearly opaque, dark colour on this wine. I find that there is a bit of a struggle with the dark fruits and wood notes, eg. plum & blackberry vs. mint & vanilla. Tannins are soft and the acidity is in check. Enjoy this 2012 vintage now or within the next two years.
Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

A balanced wine with a continuum of flavour throughout of chocolate and mocha flavours clasping raspberry and blackberry fruits. A rich sweet mid-palate and finish are firmed by ripe, prominent tannins.

Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

Un vin équilibré aux saveurs constantes de chocolat et de moka saisissant les framboises et les mures. Un palais intermédiaire sucré riche et un fini ferme avec tannins murs et évidents.

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.
