Heather Wall rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Mmmm...a freshly opened bag of Swedish berries candy. That was the first aroma to impress my nose. Fresh sun ripened plums, cherry liqueur, vanilla danced in my mouth. Medium plus body and smooth. Mild tannins make it enjoyable now. Enjoyed with charred salted ribs.




Natalie's Review

J. Lohr South Ridge Syrah 2011, Paso Robles, California, United States: A plush, supple red with lovely aromas and flavours of juicy plums and a satin smooth texture.

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

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.
