Reviews and Ratings

Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Floral notes, lavender, black cherry moving to thinning briar (blackberry, black raspberry) notes. A note of dried fruit as well. Chalky minerals coming through similar to terroir-driven Yecla Mourvèdre. Jumilla is one of the only places that the grape can stand on its own. Score: 89. (ottawawinejournal.com)
Inky purple color. Strongly floral nose displays a seductive bouquet of dark berries, lavender, rose and smoky Indian spices. Vibrant blackberry and candied cherry flavours are lifted by zesty minerals, becoming deeper and sweeter with air. The impressively brisk and focused finish features pure berries. Here’s another crazy value. Source: Josh Raynolds, International Wine Cellar

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty 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.
