More Wine Reviews and Ratings

Philippe Perreault, Sommelier rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Clear garnet color.

A nose of bleuberry, cassis, eucalypteuce, coffee, mocha, chocolate, spice, espresso and licorice.

The wine is firm, creamy, full-bodied and long on the palate.

Pair it with grilled red meat.

Serve it at 15-17 degrees.

Ready to drink but can be aged 6-8 years yet.
The 2010 vintage was superb, and this Niagara Cabernet was harvested on November 12. The wine was matured 16 months in French and American wood. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
