Reviews and Ratings

Neil Phillips rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Deep ruby in appearance.

Aromas of red & black plum, red currant, ripe cherry, capsicum, pine - and lots of tobacco, vanilla and oak.

On the palate, high alcohol, medium+ tannins and acid. Overall, jammy notes of plum, currants and baking species - resinous note and powerful vanilla.

The finish quite long, but slightly hot and astringent.

Tasted November 2016.

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.
