Erin rated this wine as 89/100
Brad rated this wine as 82/100 with the following review:

I found this to be a light bodied, somewhat fruity red wine. It lacked the body you would typically see and taste in a red wine from a hotter region. Hints of mint and black licorice on the nose.
This unique wine blends Cabernets Sauvignon and Franc with Merlot, Gamay and Syrah and was aged for 12 months in French oak. The 2010 is the inaugural vintage. Layered aromas of wild raspberry, redcurrant, cherry, hickory, smoked meat, vanilla and black pepper. On the palate it’s dry showing red fruit and smoky notes at the fore, with brilliant acidity and fine tannins giving delineation and structure. A great food wine. Source: Vintages Wine Catalogue.

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.
