More Wine Reviews and Ratings

Heather Wall CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This full-bodied red is deep ruby colour with aromas and flavours of black cherry, black berry, bakers chocolate, toasted oak, vanilla, tar, leather, graphite. Rich tannins and medium+ acidity sing in harmony. This Cab is drinking nicely now but will reward over the next 5 years. The length is long on a fruit driven finish. Aged in French and American oak. Blended with some Merlot and Malbec. Traditional Cab pairings include grilled steak, good cuts of beef, hearty beef stew.
Tasted: December 2014

Red, White & Drunk all over by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean writes about wine with a sensuous obsession... and often laugh-out-loud funny... Terrific.

Ms. MacLean is the disarming Everywoman. She loves wine, loves drinking ... ultimately, it's a winning formula.

  Best Books of the Year

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.

Gary Vaynerchuck, Wine Library TV
