Reviews and Ratings

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

A portion of the Merlot was sourced from Anarchist Mountain Vineyard and harvested Oct 6at 23 BRIX. Five days cold soak, punch downs only, pressed off the 26 of Oct. Blended with grapes from the Naramata bench, then aged in a mixture of both new and older French Bordeaux oak barrels for 9 months.

75% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc. The cranberry aromas of Cabernet Franc highlight the deep plum and blackberry scents of Merlot. Flavours of blackcurrant, black cherries and chocolate linger on the palate. Beautifully balanced, this wine has velvety smooth tannins and a seamless finish. Drink NOW.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty 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.
