Reviews and Ratings

ESTATE BOTTLED / A towering, blockbuster BC red wine made from the classic Cabernet Sauvignon grape. Burrowing Owl has earned its reputation as one of BC's -- and Canada's -- best producers. This robust BC Cabernet offers aromas of wild cassis, tart blackberry, graphite and smoke. Needs cellar time, then decant 2 hours: firm tannic grip. Beautiful structure, long finish. Perfect for a prime rib. MINE: From the Okanagan Valley wine region in British Columbia, Burrowing Owl Estate Bottled XXXX Cabernet Sauvignon is a robust, chewy blackberry, dark chocolate, coffee and sagebrush Cabernet. Needs cellar time, then decant 2 hours. OTHER: burrowing Owl gives a hoot about sustainability. In fact, they're a leader in eco-conscious winemaking in the Okanagan Valley. They've installed banks of photovoltaic solar panels on their property to provide their own sustainable energy, and their solar water-heating project is so successful that they've literally got more hot water than they know what to do with in the winery (their solution: use the excess to heat a swimming pool for lucky visitors). Their Cabernet is consistently big and impressively structured with layers of red fruit, dark fruit and oak spice (Vintages Panel, updated). - Community Wine Reviews

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.
