Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Blended from Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine has aromas of bright red cherry, plum, and raspberry, along with hints of floral, cedar, and smoke. Full bodied, with soft tannins, and bright acidity, ripe fruit with just a hint of tartness, and a touch of warm vanilla and spice on the finish. Enjoy with roast beef, or any rustic mushroom dishes.
Christian Marcoux rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

The Bella Terra 2018 Red, blended from Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, offers aromas of red currant, fruit cake, bay leaf, new leather, chocolate, vanilla and cedar. Made by Pond View in the Niagara wine region, the Red shows a medium body, approachable tannins, direct acidity and a fruity finish with notes of spices. Palate: tart plum, sour cherry, bay leaf, leather, baking spices and cedar. Enjoy.

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.

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.
