Reviews and Ratings

Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Oodles of ripe mulberry, baking spice, forest floor and nicely integrated wood. Pair with seared elk chops with a black briar compote. 90 Points. (www.ottawawinejournal.com)

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty 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.
