Inta rated this wine as 70/100 with the following review:

Decanting would help, serving cool is also a must. We had it with a meal that had a lot of Mediterranean flavours and it was pretty good... But overall, it reminded me of a Croatian uncle's homemade wine , made to drink with the family on a sunny patio by the sea. Not a bad thing...

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.
