Reviews and Ratings

Strappingly rich blackberry and Italian plum notes on the nose. It paints the sinuses with elements of earth, beet root, dark chocolate and cinnamon. Juicy plum and mulberry-like flavors. Sappy and long but not the least bit ponderous nor heavy. It glides down easily and brings you back for more. Suitable for red sauce pasta, lentil-based preparations or grilled beef. Drink now-2013. Score: 90 DMg

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.
