Natalie's Score: 91/100

Smooth, medium-bodied Prince Edward County Pinot Noir from one of the region's best producers. Racy acidity and great vibrancy on the mid-palate. Seductive. Aromas of fleshy cherry and freshly turned earth. Pair with roast chicken.

Pinot Noir food pairings: planked salmon, braised veal chops in red wine, slow-cooked lamb shanks.

Terrific Turkey Wine

Reviews and Ratings

Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

This is so nuanced and pure, yet electrified and high-toned. There's sour cherry, sweet spice and unripe raspberry at play on the palate, along with some fresh herbs on the finish. Gorgeous, smooth, sensual. Rose petals open up after a half-hour in the glass 91 Points.
Kendra & Matthew Elliott rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Medium bodied, pale ruby with intense flavours of red fruit, especially cherry. Smoke coming through on the nose. Balanced tannin and alcohol making this a very enjoyable wine with a terrific 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.
