Heather Murray reviewed this wine as follows:

WineAlign 89
David Lawrason (91): This pours pale garnet. The nose is pretty and delicate with red currant jam, strawberry, floral notes and a touch of cab franc tobacco. Very good varietal character. It is sweet, of course, but not unctuos. There is good acidity, even a hint of acetone, that helps pucker the finish. The length is excellent, and it ends with typical cab franc tobacco, even a vague sense of tannin, then the strawberry fruit floods back. Should work beautifully with slightly savoury pates and cheeses. Tasted Sept 2012
Nadia Fournier (3/5): A notch below but still significant by flavors of red fruits and spices. Good overall balance.
Jason Solanki (91):Intense aromas of candied strawberry, cherry and floral aromas. Lush mouthfeel with ripe strawberry and cherry replays on the palate. Overall, it's very well-balanced by mouth-watering acidity. Lovely! Tasted Sept/2012.

Lush and sweet with loads of flavour - strawberry rhubarb jam with hints of herbs and spice. Really an explosion of flavours in your mouth. It would have benefited from a tad more acidity and tannin to balance out the sweetness.

Pinkus (4.5+): This is a really lush, plush wine that's creamy on the palate with all kinds of unctuous flavours. Sweet cherry soaked in honey then baked into a compote ... there's good acidity to balance off all that sweetness and a touch of blackberry on the finish makes it even more enjoyable.

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.
