Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A GSM Rhone blend, dark garnet with dusty aromas of dark cherry, herbs and cedar leading to a palate giving cherry, raspberry, red plum, cedar, savoury touches. Full-bodied, dry, balanced.
Tasted Nov. 2016
A full-bodied, supple and smooth southern French red wine made from Grenache grapes in the Giogondas region by a very respected producer. Pair with grilled meats. - 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.
