Reviews and Ratings

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Big and juicy, bursting with fleshy ripe plums, black currant, earthy minerality, savoury notes and black peppery spice. Balanced, medium tannins, medium acidity. Tasting well paired with a thick cut Montreal smoked meat brisket sandwich on rye bread. Would pair well with roast rack of lamb or an antipasti platter. Tasted Oct 2017. 89 points. Good value.

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.
