Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Hanniman rated this wine as 91/100
Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

The 2009 Sandhill Cabernet/Merlot is a medium bodied, integrated wine, with intense aromas of black cherry, blackberry, sweet vanilla, cedar and very faint green note. Acidity is on the acidic side, tannins are refined (decant for 1+ hours) and the finish is long. Drink now or cellar for up to 5 years. This wine can be enjoyed with food or sipped by itself. My impression: NICE to BEAUTIFUL, 90-91 pts - great wine from Canadian producer, hence a recommended buy. Tasted Aug/12.

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.
