Reviews and Ratings

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Wonderful Okanagan Syrah, juicy, complex, great minerality. Well balanced mouthwatering acidity and deeply concentrated fruit. Red berry black berry, savoury herb. Fruit sourced from black sage bench and golden mile bench in the Okanagan valley. Loved this Syrah. Pair with lamb kebabs. Tasted at #viwf 2017 rated 91/100.
Sylvain Segard rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Medium Ruby colour. Fragrant aromas of red berries, cassis, blackberries, and spicy flowers. The juicy berries flavours are framed with a dusty dry tannic structure. A lovely balanced wine with a long red fruit finish. Score 90. (S.Segard, reviewed Sept. 24, 2017).
Deep ruby in colour, this wine has aromas of pepper and toasty oak intermingling with flavours of rich mocha, chocolate, and ripe black fruits.

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.
