Reviews and Ratings

Trevor Sabourin - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

This is a juicy, fruit-forward, peppery/spicy red with just a touch of smoky oak. On the nose there is lots of candied raspberry, strawberry, and cherry fruit, along with lavender, vanilla, cedar, black pepper, menthol, and hints of earth, smoke, and cured meat. In the mouth the fruit is fresh, the pepper a bit stronger, some bitter cocoa emerges, and the rest repeats. The acidity is moderate and the tannins fairly soft. There is some alcohol heat which takes away from the balance a bit, but otherwise this is a very fresh, enjoyable wine. Give it a light chill to accent the freshness. Pair with barbequed chicken or lighter pastas. Tasted Jan. 2017.

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.
