Reviews and Ratings

Jeff Lawson rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

The look alone of this bottle has some incredible merit - gorgeous dark pink grapefruit color with a bottle that looks like it belongs in an art gallery. First of all, if you have never tasted a Rose of Syrah, go out and get a bottle (preferrably this one) tonight. No, this is NOT White Zinfandel - not by a long shot! This is a semi sweet Rose that exhibits a potpourri of flavors that include strawberry, grapefruit, citrus basket, and just a touch of wild raspberries. The flavors are mouth watering and when served chilled (but not cold) this wine will be one of your new best friends. This is quite possibly the best Rose I have tasted in recent memory. 99% Syrah, 1% Mourvedre. ABV: 13.5%. 220 cases produced.

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.
