Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Lots of tart cherry, pepper, and an earthy undertone. Medium+ body, with bright acidity, and light tannins with lots of tart fruit on the palate. Tons of flavour! Enjoy with grilled salmon or pork.
From Georges Duboeuf, Lovely aromas of black cherry and pepper on the nose, full-bodied with tart cherry, black raspberry, pepper, and smoky on the palate with bright acidity and well-integrated tannins to match. So much flavour here. - 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.
