Reviews and Ratings

The color of this wine remains a youthful purple, the fruit tense and bold. It has a cool, forest floor character, with conifer spice and porcini notes under the dark cherry flavor. The fruit seems to grow out of the mineral tannin, building textural amplitude and impressive length. A mouthwatering Chianti to decant for duck ragù with pappardelle.

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.
