Reviews and Ratings

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Showing bold and earthy, old world barnyard essence on the nose. Voluptuous on the palate, concentrated red fruit, mocha, earthy minerality, aged leather. Complex, well balanced, integrated medium alcohol, fine medium plus tannins. Paired well with gourmet beef burgers. Drinking well. Tasted 2012 vintage, decanted 2h in March 2018. 92 points
Sean O'Regan - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

The second wine from Osoyoos Larose, using five Bordeaux varietals with Merlot dominant. Pours deep garnet, good intensity on the nose showing dark plummy and cherry fruit, delicate toasty spice, dried green herb and forest floor. Medium full bodied and silky with ripe cherry, plum and currant up front followed by sage and herb on a long finish with fine drying tannins. Very nicely balanced, approachable and delicious. I expect peak drinking now and over the next couple of years before a slow decline. Paired with mushroom ravioli, but would fit equally well with herb crusted beef tenderloin. Tasted Oct 2016
Cherie Cole rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Hailing from BC's Okanagan Valley, this Bordeaux style blend expresses a wine with balance and elegance. Red cherry, plum and savoury herbs show up on the nose and palate. The body is medium with velvety tannins and a medium, dark fruit finish. A perfect accompaniment with red meat or wild game. Tasted March 2018.

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.
