Reviews and Ratings

Winner of a Gold Medal at the 2009 Concours Mondial de Bruxelles, this wine is a blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon that spent 12 months in French oak. : Maturing gracefully early on, this nicely structured wine offers up fresh berry fruit along with earthy and coffee notes. Medium-full bodied with a fleshy texture, pinpoint balance and resolving tannins. This wine is a joy to drink now and will continue to evolve over the next five years. Fine, clean finish.

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.
