Reviews and Ratings

RESERVE / Full-bodied with big purple and black plums. Fleshy and full-bodied, willing to go where you want to go. OTHER: Wanda rated this wine as 78/100 with the following review: An easy wine to drink anytime. I enjoy the berry notes and spice aromas. It does tend to taste better when it's had a chance to breathe. Equally delicious with both pork and chicken. OTHER: Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows: Los Cardos Malbec is a spicy wine with a touch of dried herbs that are well combined with mature fruits like dry plums and black cherries. It has great balance, structure and concentration and presents delicate mint notes. The finish is pleasant and persistent. Source: NB Liquor Stores. OTHER: A new addition to Mission Hill's reserve tier, this stylish red blend is soft, juicy and satisfying. It's a blend of 34 percent Cabernet Franc, 30 percent Cabernet Sauvignon, 29 percent Merlot and seven percent Petit Verdot, aged for 15 months in French and American oak. The finished wine boasts a ripe core of blackberry and blueberry enhanced by malted and cocoa notes from the barrel aging. That small but significant percentage of Petit Verdot really shows itself on the finish - with an earthy element that leaves a lasting impression. Remarkable complexity, texture and length make for a winning combination of elegance and power. Score - 91 (Christopher Waters, watersandwine.com, undated). - Community Wine Reviews

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.
