Reviews and Ratings

Lori Kilmartin - WSET3 Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

If you are looking for a wine for a family member, a co-worker who is like family or your neighbour who treats you like family - this would be a fabulous gift! All kidding aside, I have purchased this wine in the past for others as well as had it brought in for a company function. It's a wine that everyone loves. Plenty of dark fruit aromas; blackberry and black cherry, smoke and vanilla. Well balanced with each of the grape varieties bringing something to the mix (Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon & Baco Noir). Medium bodied with a long fruit finish with a hint of pepper spice. Tasted November 2016
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This is a lovely blend of Syrah, Merlot, Cab Franc, Cab Sauvignon and Baco Noir. Aromas include ripe berry fruit, black pepper, tobacco, leather and dried herbs. A lovely balance of those flavours on the palate as well, a bit more fruit forward. The finish is lingering and some nice acid keeps this from being too heavy. Try with grilled pork tenderloin and enjoy!
Colin McKone - Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A blend of Syrah, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Baco Noir, this is a dark ruby red wine. It has aromas of black cherry, black pepper, tobacco, cedar, and black berries. The black pepper and black fruit follow through on the palate with the pepper lingering for a medium to long finish. This would pair nicely with beef dishes or BBQ dishes.
Donna Hargrove reviewed this wine as follows:

I'm not going to lie, sometimes a label speaks to me, and when that label says "Henry of Pelham" and "Family Tree", it's speaking volumes. This dark ruby red has notes of dark berries, tobacco and pepper. The medium to long finish is the star of the show, enticing you to have another sip.
