Reviews and Ratings

Marco Giovanetti rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

On the nose, fragrant with an attractive and aromatic nose of ripe fruit aromas of cherries, strawberries and currants with spice overtones, almonds with floral notes of roses, dust- earth, mushrooms, dried herbs, anise, minerals, a touch of vanilla and toasted oak in the background. On the mouthMedium to full body with a good concentration and well balanced. However, still youthful with vibrant, ripe fruit flavors of dark cherries, blackberries and dark currants with spices and more toasty oak
A nose of cherry, plum, anise and tobacco with a very evocative floral complexity. Very attractive and appealing. Ripe fruit and vanilla sing in the mouth accompanied by spice and more floral notes. Lovely from beginning to end. Source: Vintages Wine Panel, March 2013

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.
