Reviews and Ratings

Deborah Podurgiel - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A solid, easy-going and plushy red, Road 13 Honest John’s 2021 Bold Red Wine is a dry, fruit-driven, barely medium-plus-bodied red wine blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Gamay and Pinot Noir. Lovely on the nose with dark cherry, cassis, dark plum, minty and cracked pepper flavours lingering on a smoky vanilla note. Fresh and juicy with soft tannins, the wine is very approachable now (to 2026), and don’t be afraid to lightly chill it to bring out the best of its dark fruit flavours. Enjoy it with burgers and ribs from the grill. Tasted July 2023.

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.
