Reviews and Ratings

Very deep ruby colour, almost opaque, with aromas of cassis, blueberry, black cherry, woodsmoke, spices and cedar. Dry, fruity and fresh simultaneously, with a touch of tannic grip giving the wine some structure and an elegant finish. Source: Vintages Wine Catalogue.

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.
