Reviews and Ratings

Brent Gushowaty rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

The wine here is very pale with a rim like the colour of pomegranate seeds. On the nose it shows cranberry/pomegranate fruit, some minerality, baking spices and a good acidity. The light red fruits, minerality and baking spices are all on the palate as well. The texture is remarkable. The very fine grained fruit lingers and haunts for a long while B to B+ ~ 93

Julia’s Vineyard, in Santa Barbara county was named for Julia Jackson in 1988. It consists of ancient soils with fossilized seashells, shale, limestone, and sand, with fog-affected vines. There are over 400 acres of pinot noir vines on the estate, containing eight different clones including 4, 2A, 23, 667, 115, 777 and 828.
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Concentrated red berry and cherry, approachable. Pairs well with festive gatherings and roast turkey. Tasted 2015 vintage in May 2019 decanted. 89 points

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.
