Reviews and Ratings

Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Deep burgundy colour with dark cherry, strawberry jam, vanilla and dark chocolate on the nose. Flavours are full with ripe raspberries, blackberries, red plum, burnt caramel and sun dried tomatoes. Acidity is high, body is on the fuller side with grippy tannins that allow the fruit to stand at attention. Dry (3G/L) and daring at a reasonable value $14.95. A sound accompaniment with beef tenderloin, ham and grilled pork chops. 87 points - tasted April 2018

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.
