Reviews and Ratings

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

Softer nose than some more recent vintages, this Sonoma beauty consistently displays full power of classic cassis with and a fully approachable softer structure. A touch of sweetness but never cloying. Full and rich, and sure to impress.
Simon Chen rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

nice and juicy cabernet from the sonoma county. It carries some of the freshness and greeness from the sonoma fruits and followed with gentle tannin on the finish.

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.

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.
