Reviews and Ratings

Tony rated this wine as 91/100
Sylvain Segard rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

This wine exudes the classic marker of a California Chardonnay with green apples, lemons and toasty oak aromas, medium mouthfeel, and creamy medium-long buttery finish. Well-executed and not overwhelming woody or nutty. Nice pairing with lobster, salmon, or buttery clams; especially at this modest price. Score 88. (S.Segard, reviewed March 26, 2017).
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Fresh floral, green apple, melon, subtle cedar and honey notes hit the high for this easy drinking, crowd pleasing summer sipper. It's light-bodied, well-balanced and refreshing. Enjoy with light cheeses and good friends. Tasted March 2017 by @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
Michel Robichaud rated this wine as 71/100

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.
