Reviews and Ratings

Michelle Williams rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

This is a nice, fruity Cabernet. Compared to a Napa cab (which is what I drink most) this is a more fruit forward cab. It has a nice medium red color with a floral boutique. The palate opens with sweet cherry (but not too sweet), and moves through mild chocolate, cassis and some earthy flavors. It has a soft acidic finish that left a slight dryness to my palate, which I prefer in a cab. This wine is made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. The winemaker recommends 5 years of rest before it "calms down." At 7 years out I would say it has calmed down nicely. I enjoyed it and look forward to having it again. I did not have it with food but as a cab it would pair well with a hearty meal.

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.
