Reviews and Ratings

Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Not your typical Pinot Noir. This wine is bold with aromas of cassis, plum, cedar, potpourri, burnt toffee and floral notes. Full bodied on the palate and slightly tart with flavours of blueberry, blackberry, cedar, vanilla, and baking spice.

Wine-Food Pairing: Try with barbecued porc chops.

Tasted April 2019 at the California Wine Fair in Ottawa.
Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Notes of black currant, cherries and vanilla bound within a forest floor flavor. Finished with a touch of herbs and some baking spice. Highly recommended. Tasted April 2019 at the California Wine in Ottawa.

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.
