Reviews and Ratings

Melanie Aubert rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

This 50% merlot Bordeaux blend has nice cherry, blackberry, vegetal, smokey and slightly oaky notes. Medium tannins and acidity. Would pair nicely with a Sunday roast.
Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Smoky cherry, raspberry and cranberry aromas. The flavour is tart cherry, with young grippy tannins and medium acidity.
Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

A little green, but still some nice cherry and black tea notes. 87 points. (www.ottawawinejournal.com)

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.

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.
