Reviews and Ratings

Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Spicy aromas of plum and blackberry with a touch of dark chocolate and mint. The taste adds a little vanilla and cedar, and the spice really shows. Medium+ acidity, a healthy allotment of fine tannins and a medium spicy black cherry finish. A nice prime rib or BBQd steak wine.
Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Blackcurrant and dark berries on the nose, followed by a bracing palate showing dark berry fruit, spice, smoke and a hint of dark chocolate. Spicy dark berry finish.

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.
