Reviews and Ratings

Ben Tollestrup rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This deep ruby Australian Cabernet Sauvignon has an amazing lasting finish. It’s dry with medium ripe tannin and full body. Enjoy notes of black cherry, cassis, vanilla, raspberry, and an evolution of woodsy flavours including eucalyptus, cedar and mint. Rather than food, I suggest this wine as accompaniment to C. L. R. James’ memoir on cricket, Beyond a Boundary. It's an excellent read, and an excellent wine for deep contemplation.

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.
