Reviews and Ratings

An attractive full-bodied red wine with smoky toasty oak and black fruit on the nose. Good price for the quality. Black raspberry and smokiness on the palate and finish inflected with black tea. MINE: This is a Petite Sirah red wine from Lodi, California. Ironstone (2014) is full-bodied and smoky with black raspberry and blackberry jam. Pair with a venison roast or bison burgers. OTHER: Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review: Lovely earthy underbrush, graphite minerality, Aussie licorice candy, and stewed plum aromas. Flavours are deeply concentrated and complex with stewed plum, cassis, vanilla and tanned leather notes. The 2014 Irony showcases a velvety smooth mouthfeel and mild "dusty tannin" texture and a long mouth-watering finish. Enjoy with gourmet blue cheese bacon burgers. Tasted June 2017 by @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca. OTHER: Made from Petite Sirah with a dollop (10%) of Zinfandel, this wine from a popular producer is reliably fruity, robust and smooth with ripe blueberry, blackberry and spice character. Pour it with burgers or beef fajitas (Vintages Panel, updated). - Community Wine Reviews

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.
