Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Delicious! Aromas of black cherry, blackberry, plum, mocha and warm baking spices. Full bodied and robust with firm grippy tannins, and mouthwatering acidity. Fruit and berry notes on the palate are rich, ripe and slighly jammy, balanced with notes of mocha, eucalyptus, clove and warm smoky hints. Enjoy with prime rib or any robust mushroom dishes.
Duckhorn 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon is well-structured, concentrated and plushy on the palate with layers of cassis, rich dark cherry, plum, dark chocolate, pepper, vanilla and toasty oak spice flavours. A blend of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with 16% Merlot produced from grapes sourced from Rutherford, Oak Knoll, Napa Valley, Calistoga and Oakville, the wine was aged for 16 months in French oak barrels (50% new). - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

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.

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.
