Reviews and Ratings

Lori Kilmartin - WSET3 Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This is a smooth full bodied red with velvety tannins and lots of ripe fruit. Aromas of blackberry and leather, with a touch of vanilla. A great priced wine for a summer bbq with a crowd! Share it with your family and friends.
Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Smoky dart fruit, cedar, and touch of pepper on the nose and palate. A great wine to enjoy with full flavoured BBQ fare and at under $15, this offers great value making it a top choice for pouring with large gatherings or on Tuesday evenings when you just need a glass of great wine! Tasted January 2016. 88 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
Nick Onischuk - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

The Peninsula Ridge Cabernet Merlot 2013 is a good value wine. Dark cherry, dark berry fruit, earthiness and pepper. Tasted January 31, 2016 (88/100)
Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Full-bodied, a little rough around the edges, but thoroughly enjoyable with a charcuterie plate. Black cherry, leather, woodsy notes predominate. Quite respectable at this price point.

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.
