Reviews and Ratings

Jason Solanki rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Intense aromas of warm black fruit, blueberry and plum. Full-bodied with mint, licorice, black fruits and some earthiness. It has mouth-watering acidity, very fine tannins, and a long finish. Yum! Tasted Sept/2012.
Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

Purple-red colour with intense aromas of spices, violets, dark cherry, blackberry, blueberry, liquorice, pepper and boot-polish. The taste is rich, gutsy and virile, with spice, dark liquorice, cherry, blackberry plum and dried black olive.

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.

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.
