Rzeancak rated this wine as 95/100
Marc Prud'homme rated this wine as 84/100 with the following review:

This is a dry mid-bodied and at first mouth full I thought it was OK but then I had a bite of food and more wine and it truly complimented my meal. For those who want to know I had stewed sausages.
Caryl Mostacho rated this wine as 79/100 with the following review:

Bitter pepper on the tongue, nice sharp taste. Good wine for the value. Enjoy with pizza!

Red, White & Drunk all over by Natalie MacLean

  Best Books of the Year

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.
