Reviews and Ratings

Darlene Myers - CAPS Student rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

This was one of Zinfandel's that have me falling in love with Zinfandel time and time again. Juicy and jammy, ripe berries, pepper, spice all come together in a delicious orchestra of flavor. Great for grilled foods, chicken and pizza.
Beth rated this wine as 90/100
Courtney Flood rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Jammy fruit, cracked pepper, cocoa. Long finish, delicious pizza wine!
Zinfandel is always so delicious, but this one from Dry Creek is really good. Look for ripe and juicy wild field berry, cherry, anise and pepper spice flavours on this fragrant Zin. Great value as well.

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.
