Julia Kelada rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

For those of you familiar with my reviews and my journey with wine, you will know that I am married to a Portuguese and we have travelled to Portugal where we drank many bottles of inexpensive...okay dirt cheep, wine that was delicious and yet here in Canada it seems that the variety is so so limited. It is one of my huge frustrations, aside from the fact that when we do discover a delicious wine it is incredibly expensive.

This Portuguese wine had so little information about it that that in itself was hugely frustrating, so I took a gamble and my friends,this one is worth it!

A deep purple in colour. On the nose there were wild cherries, red currants and wild blueberries with a mild undertone of strawberries combined with sweet straw and nutmeg.

On the palate there were cherries, blueberries, raspberries and Pomegranite. The fruits started to blend into one and were enveloped in a velvety vanilla note with a slight Cinamon tone. The wine started to explode with flavour and leather and coffee wrappped you mouth with an incredible personality. The tannins were of a good length.

Bottoms up!

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.
