Reviews and Ratings

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Deep ruby with a purple hue. 12.6 % ABV declared. Freshly cut wood, tart red berry, forest floor, peppery. The 2013 vintage is a robust young Syrah which has a prominent wood character. Pair with pepper steak or Cantonese beef and blackbean sauce. 87 points
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Meaty smoky and peppery is not something I am typically drawn but it is interesting, to say the least. A full-bodied peppery Niagara Peninsula Syrah with mild black fruit flavours, prominent minerality, and cracked pepper flavours, and a long spicy finish. Enjoy with peppery steak kebabs.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty 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.
