Reviews and Ratings

Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

On the nose, this Cabernet Sauvignon has juicy blackberry and blackcurrant aromas with subtle earthy beets, violet, sweet spice, and sweet tobacco.

On the palate, there are black plum and blackcurrant flavours with espresso at the finish.

Tasted May 2018
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

What a great value! Aromas of currant, blackberry, mint and some smoky spice on the nose. Smooth tannin, lots of.dark, ripe fruit on the palate, and a medium finish. Medium bodied and medium acidity. Overall, great bang for your buck! Enjoy with burgers or grilled pork chops.
Jenna rated this wine as 60/100

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.
