Reviews and Ratings

Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Lovely notes from oak aging emanate from the glass. Intense toffee on first nose followed by fresh berries, coffee, sweet spices, more toffee and horse saddle. This wine just might be peaking now...
Medium(+) bodied with smooth tannins and refreshing acidity. Long length on a toffee and berry finish. Very nice indeed. Enjoy with a juicy medium-rare grilled steak.
Tasted: January 2016
Gran Reserva wines are produced during the winery's best vintages and are oak aged and bottle aged to greater complexity and maturity of aroma and flavour. This wine won a Silver Medal at the International Wine Challenge in 2015. - 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.
