Reviews and Ratings

Colin McKone - Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This is a wine I have had in my cellar for a while and the time has come to enjoy it. It is garnet in colour and bricking. It has aromas of black currant, blackberry, strawberry, cherry, plum and mint. The aging in the bottle has mellowed out the tannins, making them nice and smooth. It is full bodied with balanced acidity and has flavours of red cherry, mocha and strawberry.

This Cabernet Merlot will go great with grilled red meats, I personally enjoyed it with roast beef. (Tasted February 26/17)

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.
