Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Plush, with a hint of smokiness! Lots of deep, fleshy plum on the nose, along with a bit of a bright cherry and almost a bit of a savory note. Full bodied, smooth tannins, and lots of plush fruit on the palate. Quite a long finish. Very enjoyable! I would pair this with grilled lamb, or elk burgers.

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.
