Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Aromas of plum, blackberry, cedar smoke, and warm spice. Full bodied and smooth on the palate, with soft tannins, medium acidity, and ripe, black fruit and berry notes. Enjoy with pork tenderloin.
The story of his wife’s passing was well known and when the new owners harvested the grapes and produced their first vintage, they were immediately seduced by the incredibly unique taste and feel of this wine. There was a devilish quality to the wine and when the it passed over their lips, it was difficult to stop. As if they were possessed. Devil's Kiss Cabernet Sauvignon is bursting with aromas of blueberry, cocoa, leather and cinnamon. The structure is lush and full with soft tannins. The wine finishes with cedar cigar box, vanilla spice, and ripe red cherries.

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.
