Reviews and Ratings

Darlene Myers - CAPS Student rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

This wine reminded me of Apothic Red at a fraction of the price. Juicy and jammy with some sweetness. It wasn't as sweet as some I have tried lately. It's easy to drink, many of your friends are going to like it, and a great summer wine for the patio party or the BBQ.
Paula Bernardino rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

I tried this red wine from California at Vargas Steakhouse in Montreal. I loved the modern-looking label and its description of "Big Bold Red". This is a full-bodied wine with tastes of berries with some spice. It went lovely with the filet mignon I ordered.
Melanie Aubert rated this wine as 84/100 with the following review:

This deep purply red wine smells of berry jam, vanilla and spice. This lip-smacking Californian blend is super juicy and reminiscent of a zinfandel. Very low tannins and flavours of plum, ripe cherry, raspberry, blackberry, vanilla and sweet spice, with a medium-long finish. Nothing overly complex here, just easy drinking.
Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 82/100 with the following review:

Not much to this wine except for berry, berry, and more berry. An easy quaff that is well made. 82 Points. (ottawawinejournal.com)

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.
