Reviews and Ratings

Another new winner from the Burrowing Owl offshoot label: this time, a blend of Syrah and Merlot – and some sort of touch of magic in the winemaking process – resulting in a stunningly tasty blend that’s just (nicely) a little bit oily (mellow is probably a better term), soft and full, with a great finish … The winery team suggests rich tomato-based dishes, calling forth the taste of liqueur-filled chocolates, which it would accompany beautifully, too. Great value. Source: Jurgen Gothe, Georgia Straight, Nov. 9, 2011

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.
