Reviews and Ratings

13Th Street (2016) is a juicy and ripe Cabernet Merlot from the Creek Shores, Niagara Peninsula. On the nose the wine is fresh green herbs, small dark berries and toasty oak. Good medium weight to t his wine with great balance of acidity to fruit flavours. This single-vineyard wine is 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Merlot from Ontario's warm 2016 vintage. Pair it with a roast of lamb, beef or wild game. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
