Reviews and Ratings

Astrid Young - Sommelier ISG CAPS rated this wine as 95/100 with the following review:

Lots of dark blue fruit here, fruitcake comes to mind, brandied cherries and all. A bit nutty, hints of walnut shell nd chestnuts. Fabulous grip, giving support to the opulent fruits. Yes please.
Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 95/100 with the following review:

This delicious vintage Port from one of the finest declared vintages of late, is chalked full of stewed fruits, dried fruit, incense, and fresh dark berries. The plate offers rich, refreshing dried fruits, raisins, black currant, dark chocolate, and the finish goes on and on and on...Drinking beautifully now and will only continue to evolve over the next 10-20 years. Tasted November 2014. 95 points. Matt Steeves - www.nataliemaclean.com
Martha Kelly AIWS - CS rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Rich an full-bodied with pronounced flavours of bramble, dark chocolate, caramel, rum cake, and dried fruit with a bit of black pepper spice. While still in its youth it is long on the palate with refreshing acidity.
Pair with Black Forest Cake, or nuts and blue cheese.
Drink now or cellar until 2024 and beyond.
Date tasted: November 2014.

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.
