Reviews and Ratings

Louise Wilson - ISG Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

A rich wine laden with fig, raisin and baked black currant notes. Full bodied, with generous alcohol and a slightly off dry finish. Great complexity, showing highlights of dried fruit and balsamic character. Enjoy now through 2017. Tasted March 2014.
Powerful and muscular, this would pair with succulent red meat or piquant cheese. The mouthfeel is velvety and supple, and the bouquet is redolent of cooked berry, prune, dried bay leaf, humus, toasted coffee bean and licorice. Score - 91. Source: Monica Larner, Wine Enthusiast, Nov. 2012

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.
