Reviews and Ratings

Jeremy Sprott rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Jammy black and red fruit on the nose, with chocolate and sweet basil undertones. Lots of black and red fruit, chocolate and spice round out the taste. Very pleasant wine on its own, or would go nice with grill meats.
Andrew Dempsey rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

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.
