Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Very fruit forward and plush. Aromas of plum, blackberry, a hint of mocha and some smoky notes. Full bodied and plush on the palate, with bright acidity and velvety tannins. Flavours include lots of ripe black fruit flavours, and a hint of mocha on the finish. Enjoy with prime rib or braised beef short ribs.
L.J. Palmer rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Deep ruby coloured wine, full bodied, dry, and balanced. Pronounced aroma of milk chocolate, cherry, vanilla, some baking spice, mocha, and cassis liqueur. In the mouth, the taste is more milk chocolate, with cherry and vanilla, some spice, sweet black fruit and a hint of mocha. This pairs well with sweeter meats like barbecued pork chops, served with sweet potatoes, roasted and caramelized with apple and onion. This wine is also very pleasant to sip on its own.

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.
