Tasty! Just to drink on its own!
Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

This medium bodied aromatic wine has integrated notes of bilberry, black cherry, leather, cedar and coconut. Tannins are refined to tannic (decant for 30 to 60 min) and the finish is long. This wine is good to drink now or will nicely age for the next five plus years. No wonder why it received a silver medal at Concours Mondial Bruxelles in 2009. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 91 pts - highly recommended buy. Tasted Aug/10.
Although this wine is still young, I was totally captivated by it. In the nose and mouth, lush fruit, plum, cassis and cherry, with an elegant touch of vanilla and a hint of white pepper, combined with supple tannins; this is smooth, very fresh, and has a long finish. It’s a generous wine that shows great character. Source: Steve Heimoff, Wine Enthusiast

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.

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.
