Andrew Bernardo Wine Journal rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Florality has dissipated quite a bit over time. Not to say that it hasn’t completely vanished, but it is more integrated into the red cherry, cranberry, and red currants on the palate. Red briars beginning to develop. It can really go 1 or 2 more years but it would suffer from a rather precipitous decline. The problem is that while they celebrate that there is no oak in the wine, it actually could have benefitted from a few months in there to reinforce the tannic structure in order to prolong its ageability. Either way, this is the time to drink this wine, at its prime. Drink now. 90 Points. (ottawawinejournal.com)

Red, White & Drunk all over by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean writes about wine with a sensuous obsession... and often laugh-out-loud funny... Terrific.

Rex Pickett, Sideways

Ms. MacLean is the disarming Everywoman. She loves wine, loves drinking ... ultimately, it's a winning formula.

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.
