Natalie's Score: 92/100

Lots of attractive black pepper and dark fruit on the nose. This full-bodied, juicy red derives a lift in the mid-palate from the splash of viognier in the blend. It delivers hedonistic pleasure and ripe, fleshy layers of black plums and blackberries. This would be a superb gift wine, but why wait for a special occasion? Pair with grilled pork chops and herb-rubbed chicken.

Reviews and Ratings

Louise Wilson - ISG Sommelier rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

With eyes closed, the bouquet of this Rhone look alike could easily be mistaken for a grilled pepper steak. The spicy, and meaty notes are joined by a balance of plummy red and black fruit on the palate. Showing a delightful balance of fruit and savory notes, this wine is drinking exceptionally well now. Will likely hold through 2015. Fantastic for roast lamb or beef. Tasted Dec 2013.
Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Baby Cote Rotie. White pepper, blackberry, lavender, and meat blood. Beauty. 90 Points. (ottawawinejournal.com)
Super-intense nose of spicy black pepper, floral notes, blackberry, cured meat and sour cherry. Nice replays of the aromas on the palate, with firm tannic structure speaking of Victoria’s cool climate, and the sheer intensity of dark fruit speaking of Australia. A very interesting wine that must be tried to be believed – see if your wine friends can guess it’s from Oz! Source: (Vintages panel, March 2013) Full-bodied & Firm

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.
