Reviews and Ratings

Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Blackberries, raspberry, a touch of earthy aromas also present in this one. On the palate, fruity and tart with a touch of smoke. M+ body and acidity. Nicely balanced.
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Tart cranberry, baked cherry, rustic spice, with medium dusty tannins. Pairs well with roasted turkey, roast chicken or pork roast. Tasted 2016 vintage in July 2017. Enjoy soon. 88 points

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.
