Reviews and Ratings

Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

I confess I once chose this wine for the label. Yes, it was for a Halloween party. Boo! Seriously though this is a decent simple Cabernet. Dark fruit, toast and oak, vanilla, wet wool. Grippy tannins that need food. BBQ hamburger or blackened ribs. Decant.

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.
