Reviews and Ratings

Racy, sleek and vibrant wine. Lacks the sweetness some of us love, but for bone-dry-heads, this is it. There’s muscle along with sinew, though, and feral musk. Fascinating three-dimensionality at first, then kind of funnels toward pin-pointedness as it finishes. Source: Jane Anson, New Bordeaux

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.
