Reviews and Ratings

Kimberly Inksater - Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

I've been on a "Monastrell" streak this winter so this 60% Monastrell with 40% Syrah blend was a slight variation on the theme. A fragrant blend with dark berries, sun-dired black mission figs, smoke, spice and vanilla aromas. The dark fruit is also apparent on the palate. A dry finish, medium tannins and a bright acidity. Enjoy this wine with steak or burgers.
The 2011 vintage of the Sein is a full-bodied red wine blend of 60% Monastrell from old vines, imparting supple dark fruit flavours, and 40% Syrah from relatively young vines, which adds a fresh lift. The wine was matured for 12 months in oak barrels. A deep rub-red in the glass. A modest tannic grip on the palate so decant 1-2 hours. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
