Heather Wall CS; WSET Certified rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

The first notable characteristic is the colour of this wine. A brilliant salmon pink. Lovely spring berries on the nose. first sip had me a little doubtful. Extra-dry with some bitterness. As we added food with the wine and it opened up in the glass it softened. The strawberry and floral flavours came through and matched nicely with chicken penne alfredo. Creamy cheeses and seafood would also pair well.
Jane Staples Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A lovely , fresh summer Rose to greet the Summer Solstice, opening with mild cherry and raspberry fragrances, medium bodied with berry palate. Charming. Find it on the Rose table at LCBO.

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.
