Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A nice, easy drinking blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc. Aromas of currant, cherry, and plum with hints of smoke, and spice. Full bodied, smooth with some rounded tannins, ripe berry notes, and a hint of smoke on the finish. Enjoy with rustic lentil dishes.
Winemaker's Note - The 2018 Tom Thomson Algonquin Red is a unique vintage blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot grapes, barrel-aged in French oak cooperage for 11 months before blending. The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes bring deep dark cherry and plum flavours, Cabernet Franc imparts flavours of raspberry, currant, spice and dried herbs, while the Merlot adds weight and texture and ripe fruit notes of strawberry and a little cocoa.

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.
