Reviews and Ratings

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Decanted an hour, showed juicy red and black berry, mouthwatering, medium tannins. Enjoy this with a juicy BBQ beef burger or a rich chili con carne. @jonsteeves rated 88/100 - tasted Oct 2016 - bespoketastings.ca
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Aromas show a moderate intensity with notes of jammy berry fruit, sweet baking spice and vanilla. Flavours are dominated by ripe berry fruit notes and mild anise note. The palate is medium bodied with an off dry characteristic, moderate acidity and mild tannins. Enjoy with blue cheese bison burgers. Tasted Oct 2016. @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca

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.
