Don Bray rated this wine as 80/100
This Cab has classic blackberry and currant fruit flavors, along with cocoa notes, cassis and dusty mint aromas. Like the more expensive Rodney Strong offerings, this is a very well made, mid-palate wine, with no flabbiness or excessive oak to mar your pleasure. Take it out for a spin.

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.
