Reviews and Ratings

Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Primary aromas of black pepper, sage, black cherry, and earthiness with a little baking spice and vanilla. The taste shows more of the black cherry and vanilla with a little spiciness as well. The acidity is quite nice and there's some nice firm tannins for structure. A well balanced, complex wine great for heavier Italian fare or roast beef.
Alluring aromas of cherry, mint, earthiness and cedar abound. A structured, balanced and tangy wash of red cherry and lively currant bathes the palate wreathed in good moderating acidity and piquant spice. It's mid weight with good mouth feel persisting through the finish with a mellow, lip-smacking aftertaste layering on wisps of black plum and red currant galore. Score - 4 Stars out of 5 (Wines of excellence) Source: Vic Harradine, winecurrent.com, Aug. 14, 2013

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.
