Vintages Wine Panel: It’s back! This well-made and well-priced Pinot won a Gold Medal at the 2009 San Francisco Inter-national Wine Competition. Dry, medium bodied with bright red fruit flavours balanced by zesty acidity, this is a ready-to-drink. My note: A dependably delicious Pinot with notes of pleasingly tart cherries, plums and mocha. Supple, and smooth with lots of flavour.

Pinot Noir food pairings: stuffed veal tenderloin, roast turkey.

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.
