Reviews and Ratings

Donald rated this wine as 93/100
Travis Oke rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This is terrific - the best full bodied Zin in the LCBO general list. Very smooth - too easy to finish this bottle!
Darlene Myers - CAPS Student rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

I loved this Zinfandel. But I love full bodied wines and this one delivered with big fruit and tastes of spices and chocolate. It is in no way over-powering, so the name could be a little misleading.

  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.
