Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

A really good value - or a nice "Tuesday" wine for the price. Full bodied, some smoky notes along with blackberry and blueberry. Medium to full bodied, and smooth tannin. Nice smoky and deep fruit on the palate. Enjoy with a hearty pasta with sauce.

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.
