Reviews and Ratings

Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Lovely Cabernet Sauvignon accented with small amounts of Merlot, Petit Verdot, Petite Syrah, and Cabernet Franc, all sourced from Sonoma County. Ripe blackcurrant, cassis, and black cherry with cocoa and smoke. Firm but smooth tannins, good integrated acidity, and healthy body of 13.9%. A little closed off, takes some poking and prodding to get expression. Put away for another two to five years before enjoying with grilled beef or lamb.

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.
