Reviews and Ratings

Travis Oke rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Delicious, but a little light for $13. Great cherry flavours tempered with red raspberry undertones. Maybe delicate is a better word than light. I still get hung up on paying over $10 for Nouveau. I need to get over that someday. "But today is not that day" (Henry V)
Mark Britton rated this wine as 84/100 with the following review:

Lacking a little bit in the candied aromas associated with Nouveau to the point where you actually pick up odd hints of green vegetable. The nice acidity and decent length on the finish make it tolerable, but not an overly impressive wine.

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.
