Blueberries, black cherries and cassis encased in a lusty smoky frame ... Grab a case and let it age until 2017 ... On the palate a thick marching phalanx of sweet rhubarb, dark chocolate, cherry cola with some tobacco and a hint of percolated Colombian coffee. Despite the 24 months in oak the finish is remarkably clean and precise. The tannins and acids are relatively firm but not overpowering. The finish and body are in the medium range ... Source: Score: 91 (Robert K. Stephen, CSW, windsorsquare.ca, Oct. 25, 2011) Medium-bodied & Fruity

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.
