Reviews and Ratings

Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Chilean Pinot Noir often delivers terrific value and the Block 21 single vineyard certainly lives up to that expectation. Raspberry, cherry, plum, flint, and wet stones. Spicy cherry, pepper, and smoke on the palate. Enjoy with grilled lamb, venison, or firm cheeses. Tasted March 2017. 90 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Pronounced aromas of cherry, fleshy pomegranate and wet stone minerality. Flavours are showing deeply concentrated cherry, cranberry and spice flavours. Tannins are well integrated and balance against a high juicy acidity. Enjoy this love value priced Chilean Pinot Noir with pulled pork sandwiches. Tasted Mar 2017 by @sommsosa / bespoketastings.ca
Lee Newby - AIWS reviewed this wine as follows:

Grape Variety: 100% Pinot Noir

Good plus wine with red cherry and tart strawberries over baker’s spice and a dusty herbal note. The medium tannins are ripe and smooth and give good structure with the medium acidity. The fruit has medium plus intensity. The finish is medium and sweet. Drink now and for 3-4 years.

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.
