More Wine Reviews and Ratings

Darlene Myers CAPS Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Dave Matthews foray into wine-making is a delicious one. Nice jammy flavors of ripe fruits and plums. The Merlot really shines through in this wine. Will go great will grilled chicken and pork.
Lesley Quinn Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Delicious black cherry and chocolate notes make this medium bodied easy drinking wine hard to put down. The finish is very clean and balanced but this wine has no tannins so if dry wine is your preference maybe try another rock star's wine. Dave Matthews has mirrored his music in this wine with a soft soul full easy to enjoy blend. Try it with a hoisin marinated pork chop.
Kylie Toner rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

If you're looking for a nice red blend for under $20, Dreaming Tree Crush is a great find!
Intense aromas of blackberry and dark chocolate with notes of smokey vanilla, this 14 month oak aged blend has strong berry and jam flavours. Medium-bodied, good acidity with a medium to long finish. Drink as a stand alone wine or paired with ribs/barbecued meats

78% Merlot, 13% Syrah, 6% Zinfandel, 2% Petite Syrah, 1% Malbec and 1% Cabernet Sauvignon

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.

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.
