Astrid Young Sommelier ISG CAPS rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Epitomises the Rhone character, with plenty of roasted and grilled meat notes over a super dry core, indicating a high syrah content, and good concentration with some dried fruit character and chewy dry tannins. i'd bring the fruit out in this wine with a bit of soft cheese, maybe enjoy with good friends over a nice raclette, and discover the blackberries, raisins and figs lurking behind its dark exterior. LCBO notes describe the texture as 'creamy' but i'm pretty sure you'll not get that without a decant.

Red, White & Drunk all over by Natalie MacLean

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

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.
