Reviews and Ratings

Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Blackberry, dusty dried herbs, a little vanilla, and some black pepper. The taste is a very smooth blackberry and black cherry with a black cherry finish that's a little sweeter. A hint of the herbs comes through in the taste as well. Bright acidity, a little silky tannins, and great balance.
Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Great deep red colour in the glass - very enticing. Loads of ripe fruity aromas and flavours - plum, black cherry, raspberry jam. The oak is there, but well-integrated so the palate is fresh and not overdone; smooth tannins and a nice long-ish finish. Try it with smoked brisket.

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.
