Reviews and Ratings

Robert rated this wine as 74/100
Our ruby red 120 Cabernet Sauvignon
is dominated by aromas of red and forest fruits, with additional notes
of leather, cloves, and vanilla on the palate. This is a wine that develops
on the palate, juicy, with soft, ripe tannins and a very elegant finish.

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.
