Reviews and Ratings

Creekside winemaker Rob Power took home the ‘Larry Paterson Innovation in the Vineyard Award’ at the 2012 Ontario Wine Awards. This unique blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Shiraz shows his artistry. Displays intense aromas of woodsmoke, blackberry, black cherry, violets and pepper. These same notions echo on the palate alongside lifted raspberry and red cherry flavours. Bright acid and fine, grippy tannins give the wine a solid structure. Cellar 2-3 years or decant and enjoy tonight. Source: Vintages Wine Catalogue.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

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.
