Reviews and Ratings

Travis Oke rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

I have used previous vintages as my house wine - my own house - which means that I always keep a bottle on hand. Delicious juicy red wine with enough tannins to keep both the husband and wife happy with this purchase.
Natalie rated this wine as 81/100 with the following review:

Nice sipping wine
A fruit driven medium bodied red wine that has smooth berry flavours with a balanced finish.Enjoy the blackberry and cedar like aroma of the wine.

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.
