Reviews and Ratings

Writing on erobertparker.com, Neal Martin gave this wine 91 points in May 2010. Raspberry, earth, some nougat and coffee oak and a little spice. It’s fleshy and red fruited, medium bodied, with ripe grainy tannin and good level of freshness, though it shows a minor level of alcohol warmth. Finish is fresh and clean. Open and approachable now. Good drink. Drink: 2012-2017. Score: 90. Medium-bodied & Fruity. Source: Gary Walsh, winefront.com.au, Sept. 25, 2012

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.
