Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A lovely wine from a warm year in the Okanagan. Aromas of red berry, cassis, with some herbal and tobacco notes along with some warm baking spice. Full bodied and supple on the palate, with some structured tannins and a lovely blend of berry, spice and smoke on the palate. Acidity is bright but balanced and the finish is lengthy. This wine says Cabernet Franc on the label, but its blended with 8% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Merlot. Enjoy this with a grilled steak or lamb.

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.
