Reviews and Ratings

Lee Newby - AIWS reviewed this wine as follows:

Grape Variety: 54% Carménère, 46% Cabernet Sauvignon

Very good plus wine has ripe red berry fruit over green herbs, dried sage and baker’s spices. The medium tannins are round and mature. The fruit has good concentration. The wine has very good complexity and medium plus finish. Drink now and for 3-5 years.
Attractive aromas of plum, red berries and freshly roasted coffee beans. Dry with a very ripe centre and good gentle acids and velvety tannins. This wine is ideal for winter barbecues. Source: Vintages Wine Panel, April 2012

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.
