Reviews and Ratings

Developed red colour, entirely appropriate; has thrived during the eight years since vintage, with abundant blackberry and licorice fruit, quality oak, and a long, balanced palate that has fused fruit, oak and tannins into a harmonious whole. Drink [until] 2023. Score: 95 Source: James Halliday, winecompanion.com.au

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.

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.
