Reviews and Ratings

Sharon Aubie rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Dark ruby red in colour. The nose I found cherry, tobacco and chocolate. Taste medium- to full-bodied, smooth and silky but also a bit spicy.

As the bottle says, it's a "Devilishy delicious wine."

I would pair this wine with a Friday night after a tough week. Perhaps add a side of popcorn for an Olivia Pope dinner. Love this wine!
Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

I would be tempted by this wine again! A fruity blend of Merlot, Cabernet, and Shiraz. A cherry fruit burst on the nose and very pleasant on the palate. Smooth and supple. This would be a great party, crowd pleasing wine.
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Deep fruit and berry flavours. Smooth on the palate, lots of ripe berry fruit on the palate as well. Great price, try with burgers, or for pasta night.
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Round and robust, with luscious full-bodied fruit. Ripe red and blackberry, blueberry and ripe plums dominate. Medium acidity and low tannins. An approachable wine for people who love fruity juicy berry aromatics. Enjoy this on it's own or with a pizza night, or BBQ burgers and a movie. A crowd pleaser for the masses. Cute label, well positioned for sipping on Valentine's Day . Tasted Jan 2017.
Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 84/100 with the following review:

There's not much going on here. Some pretty strawberry and red cherry notes throughout but it seems a little out of sorts. 84 Points. (www.ottawawinejournal.com)

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.
