Reviews and Ratings

Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Dark ruby in the glass, dark berry, black pepper and earthiness. Full bodied with lingering flavors of currants, spice and leather. Great value!
Neil Phillips rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Dark plum jam, chocolate on the nose. Maybe a hint of nutmeg, white pepper.

Spicy plum on the palate, tannins slightly sharp, chewy on the medium-length finish.

Seems a touch sweet on the finish, I'm guessing this is a red with a bit more residual sugar. A crowd pleaser.

Tasted September 2016.
Mike rated this wine as 69/100

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

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.
