Craig Haynes rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

This wine was crafted with Plavac mali, a grape indigenous to Croatia. On this nose, this wine revealed elegant, hushed aromas of crushed berries and cherries framed with hints of cedar and spice. Red berry dominant, the palate showed supple tannins, tilted towards medium weight and introduced a fleeting finish. For me, this Plavac mali and a square of dark chocolate paired quite nicely. 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.
