Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

I always look forawrd to tasting this signature wine from Hester Creek. This vintage is made from 35% Merlot, 34% Cabernet Franc, and 28% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Petit Verdot, and 2% Malbec. Aromas of black cherry, plum and blackberry, along with hints of mocha, dried herbs, eucalyptus, and campfire smoke. Full bodied, smooth and velvety with soft, subtle tannins on the palate, and medium+ acidity. Lots of rich, dark berry flavours balanced with hints of mocha, anise, and smoke along with a touch of a dried herbal note. Enjoy with a grilled steak or prime rib.

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.
