Reviews and Ratings

Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

From the Maipo-Andes subregion in Chile. Made from 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Carmenere, and 2% Cabernet Franc, it was Aged 12 month in 60% American and 40% French oak barrel.

You can definitely smell the influence of the wood here but the fruit also speaks. Concentrated blackberry and cassis aromas along with cigar box, sweet tobacco, leather, green pepper, vanilla, and slight eucalyptus. Full bodied on the palate with perceived alcohol and smooth tannins. Tart plum, black cherry and blackberry flavours with just a touch of red licorice, and a deep espresso and smoky finish. The flavours linger. Excellent value wine. Perfect steak wine.

Tasted June 2020
Janet Holden rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Juicy dark plum, blackberry and cassis notes with aromas of black pepper, leather, tobacco and vanilla. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, round and juicy with flavours of dark fruits and berries, cedar, vanilla, chocolate, black pepper and cinnamon.

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.
