Reviews and Ratings

Lynn Van Der Linde - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Goose? Iceman? This Maverick is a perfect wingman to your next steak.
A beautiful blend of Syrah and Merlot, lots of fruit on the nose!
Blackberry jam, eucalyptus, and oak, with a black pepper finish.
Tasted July 2018.
Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

The South African winemaker at Maverick crafts a big and brash Cali-style Syrah-Merlot (avoiding the Cali-style alcohol content - this one clocks in at "just" 14%). Think jam and more jam - blackberry, black currant with spice, caramel and ripe cherry notes. Delicious! Sings out for a juicy steak or grilled portobello mushrooms.

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.
