Reviews and Ratings

Greg Hughes rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Moldova's a very underappreciated wine region that produces some pretty cool wines. Here, you get a high quality Cab Sauv that was hand-picked and aged in European oak.
It's racy, medium bodied, and woth a ton of old-wprld traditionalist flare.
It's medium-garnet, firm, and aromatic. Lots of fermenting tobacco, cedar, cassis, dried herbs, currant, bramble, and smoky vanilla.
The flavours have some nice acodoty. If one had to guess, the combination of hot days and cool nights have played a big role in the expression of this wine. Acidity and aromatics.
The flavours are lipsmacking and juicy. There is a familiar capsicum undertone thatbat once reminds me a bit of Niagara amd Washington cabs that have seen a touch less sunlight. It gives the wine a spicy edge that makes it a fun pairing wine.
This would be a fantastic and exotic burgerwine. That juicy acidity would make short work of some fatty beef.
What a cool wine. It would be fantastic to see more of this wine here. Such a solid region full of new experiences for North American palates.
Radacini is a full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon from The Republic of Moldova. "Radacini" means "roots," a fitting name for a wine from a country whose winemaking history dates back to 2800 BCE. Velvety and smooth with juicy blackberry, anise and cedar spice flavours, pair this one with a grilled steak. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
