Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Aromas of black currant, blackberry, vanilla, oak, and spice. Full bodied, smooth on the palate, with balancing acidity, ripe berry notes, and soft oak and spice hints on the finish along with more vanilla notes. Enjoy with ribs

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.
