Reviews and Ratings

Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Deep, dark and rugged. A taste of the French countryside. Deep ruby, medium-bodied with ripe dark fruit, vanilla, caramel,baked strawberry, fresh herbs, cigar, toast and earthy goodness. The tannins are integrating nicely. The length is long with fruit driven finish. Acidity is medium+ to balance the robust fruit. Dry.
Excellent value at $17.95
Pair with fine red meats, lamb stew, BBQ
Tasted: November 8, 2014
Martha Kelly AIWS - CS rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

This Malbec (85%), Merlot blend comes from the heart of the Cahors region giving cassis, and black cherry notes over layers of spice and gentle oak. Refreshing with ripe tannic structure, this wine will pair nicely with grilled red meats and winter stews.
Drink now, or cellar until 2017.
Date tasted: October 2014.
Produced by Resses & Fils, this southern French wine is a blend of 85% Malbec, 10% Malbec and 5% Tannat grapes. Leaf thinning only occurred on the east and north sides of the rows to allow air to reach the fruit. Yield was limited to 50/55 hectalitres per hectare. The wine was aged for 18 months in cement and stainless steel vats. Pair with lamb in thyme and rosemary. This wine won a Silver Medal at Concours Mondial Bruxelles in 2013. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
