Reviews and Ratings

Holly Bruns rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Notes of earth, lavendar and eucalyptus compliment the dark cherry fruit aromas; silky on the palate with a slightly sweet spiced finish, this is a lovely, warming wine for cool autumn days.
Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Aromas of cherry, plum, pepper and spice persist on the palate with a wonderful purity of fruit and crushed flowers on the finish. Lovely wine. Drink now. For $12, pretty impressive. I'm 89 on this wine. (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.
