More Wine Reviews and Ratings

Separate vinifications of Pillar Box wines are employed, and 30% of the wine destined for Pillar Box is matured in 90% French and 10% American barrels of varying age. After 12 months the chosen components for Pillar Box Reserve are blended and bottled. Not surprisingly, it is the varietal fruit expression of cabernet in this maritime climate that drives this wine, with fine tannins and enough oak to get it over the line. It will be at its best in 3-5 years. Drink until 2014. Score: 90 Source: James Halliday, winecompanion.com.au

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.
