Reviews and Ratings

Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A light ruby Pinot with aromas of strawberry, raspberry, and new leather. The taste is bright raspberry with great acidity and the tiniest hint of tannins. There's a medium-short berry finish. I had this paired with barbecued pork-chops, but the wine was a bit light for that, although still quite tasty. A better pairing would have been herb-rubbed port, or soft to medium cheese.
Guillaume rated this wine as 85/100
Christian Joly rated this wine as 50/100 with the following review:

Trop léger
This dry, light and fruity red displays a simple and medium nose. On the palate, its refreshing acidity, smooth tannins, and slender texture precede a medium finish.

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.

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.
