Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Lovely and smooth. Aromas of blackberry, raspberry, oak and white pepper. Full bodied and smooth on the palate, with bright acidity, ripe berry flavours and more white pepper and leather. Some oaky smoke carries through on the finish. Enjoy with BBQ pork or ribs.
Seghesio 2017 Zinfandel is a full-bodied, juicy and supple red with ripe raspberry, strawberry compote, anise, cinnamon spice and fresh herb flavours on the palate with toasty oak on the finish. One of the best California Zins for the money. Wine grapes are sourced from the Alexander Valley and Dry Creek Vineyards in Sonoma. Enjoy now and for the next three years. Pair with gourmet burgers. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

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.

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.
