Reviews and Ratings

Merrill rated this wine as 97/100
A crowd-pleasing wine that’s sure to impress with its spicy and fruity aromas and flavours. Look for a bright core of ripe raspberry fruit enlivened by sweet spices. Enjoyable as an easygoing sipper. Source: Vintages Wine Panel

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.

Gary Vaynerchuck, Wine Library TV
