Reviews and Ratings

Andy Buzlu rated this wine as 97/100 with the following review:

One of the best Bordeaux blends Ontario has ever made
Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Lots of plum and blackberry aromas and flavors with some smoky and pepper notes on the palate. Finishes with velvety tannins. Tasted March 2018 at Taste Ontario Ottawa.
Colin McKone - Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Dark ruby in colour with aromas of blackberry, raspberry, plum, cedar, leather and spice. It is fulled bodied with medium well balanced acidity and tannins with flavours of red fruit and black pepper. This will pair well with grilled red meats. Tasted on March 27, 2018 at Taste Ontario.
From the Niagara-On-The-Lake wine region, Icellars Arinna (2015) is a red wine blend of 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot and 18% Cabernet Franc and aged in French and American oak barrel for one year. On the nose the wine is mocha, cherry and white pepper. Decant for one hour prior to serving or hold in cellar for about five years. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
