Reviews and Ratings

Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Dates, dried plums and figs on the nose and palate. There's a touch of herbs and earthiness that gives this LBV port a unique and refreshing profile. Medium-full bodied, with decent depth of flavour. Tasted April 2016. 88 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
Late Bottled Vintage (LBV) Ports are vintage-dated, with a year on the label. However, they are made in a style to consumer much earlier than Vintage Ports, and allow us a taste of the harvest earlier than usual, but deliciously so. This lovely LBV features mixed spices, figs and plum preserves. Full-bodied with a long finish. - Community Wine Review

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.
