Reviews and Ratings

Priscilla Bergeron rated this wine as 95/100 with the following review:

Un classique!
Donna Hargrove rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This full bodied Cab is true to it's grape, with blackberry aromas and flavour, it finishes smoothly with slight hints of chocolate. The possibility of this wine lasting any longer than a week in my house is slim. I'd pair it with a plate of old cheeses or grilled meat.

Reviewed April 12, 2015
Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Meaty blackberry and vanilla, some earthiness and black pepper predominate the aromas. The taste is black raspberry and dark chocolate with some round tannins and medium-high acidity. The fruit has a distinct sweet edge to it despite its acidity and dryness, making it a good candidate for something like BBQ'd ribs.
Notes of blackcurrant, vanilla and milk chocolate serve as a monumental opening act. The palate keeps the crowd engaged with its backdrop of vanilla and mocha supporting a lifted cherry fruit. Fire up the grill and put your guests front-row centre for this main attraction. Source: Vintages Wine Ratings and Reviews, May 2013

Red, White & Drunk all over by Natalie MacLean

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.
