Heather Wall rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

This wine offers excellent value with just 800 cases produced and limited supply. This is a Southern Rhone red blend of 50% Grenache, 20% Syrah , 20% Mourvedre , 5% Carignan and 5% Cinsault. Full-bodied but elegant to be sure! Exuberant aromas and flavours of bright red berries, ripe plum, black cherry, anise, fresh flowers, smoke and leather. Good acid to fruit ratio and dry. Try pairing with rosemary encrusted roasted red meat, good old-fashioned hamburger, braised lamb or favourite cheeses.
Tasted: January 2016

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.
