Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Lovely, rich, and flavourful. Aromas of black currants and raspberries, with hints of tobacco, warm spice and smoke. Full bodied, bright acidity on the palate, and soft tannins. Bright, ripe fruit hints that are rounded and juicy. Enjoy this with grilled pork or beef.
Full bodied and richly layered, our Storied Series Cabernet Sauvignon is made with grapes from a superb, warm site on our Golden Mile Bench vineyard, blocks 7 and 8. They are French Clone 191 from St. Émillon and 169 from Bordeaux, which bring a ripe, approachable rich texture to this wine. This vintage expresses ripe black cherry and cocoa aromas, along with a touch of fresh cut clover. Cassis, caramel, and white pepper notes follow on the intense and flavourful palate. Barrel aged in primarily French oak barrels for 18 months, the wine shows a stony minerality, with a lengthy tannic finish. A brilliant showcase of Golden Mile Bench terroir, this powerhouse, yet beautifully styled wine, will cellar gracefully for many years. Only 530 cases produced.

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.
