Reviews and Ratings

Begaud rated this wine as 98/100 with the following review:

Pure fruit, raspberry flavors wiht vanila notes. Great with veal in tomato sauce .Yamy at this price !
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Tasted in 2020. Still a lot of primary fruit aroma including red cherry and currant, along with some dried herbs, eucalyptus, graphite and smoke. Full bodied on the palate, tannins are still present but likely softened over time. Fruit is still quite fresh with some dried, herbaceous notes and oak and smoke on the finish. Still tasting great but i would drink in the next year or two if you do like that ripe fruit. Enjoy with grilled meats.
Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

Deep ruby colour. On the nose, rich strawberry aromas intermixed with scents of blackcurrant and spices. Full-bodied with pleasant sucrosity and medium-full supple tanins. Long and pleasant finish. Very fine wine pleasant to drink young thanks to its fruit and roundness.

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.
