Joe Hache Prince Edward Count rated this wine as 83/100 with the following review:

I check out tasting notes when buying wines as I really like to match my wines to what I am having. This promised to be a real treat as it was supposed to match with BOTH of my two favorite foods ... Bugers AND Pizza!

Well we got a couple bottles because we wanted to try with both of these foods and we were NOT disappointed!

This wine had a light ruby garnet colour and we found it dry and light-bodied. The aromas and flavors reminded me of plums and I found it soft and fresh in style.

And YES, matched beautifully with BOTH Burgers and Pizza!

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.
