Reviews and Ratings

Peter Neilson rated this wine as 88/100
Lori Kilmartin - WSET3 Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

You don't often see 100% Carignon in the LCBO so I scooped this up - not to mention the great price. Aromas of dried cherry and an underlying earthiness. Medium to full body with medium acidity. Unoaked so lots of fruit coming through on the palate. The tannins are very evident making this a great wine to pair with a food that has a bit of fat on it. That or decant for an hour to let them settle out a bit! Tasted March 2019.
Produced by Cellar Masroig, Solà Fred 2017 is a 100% Carignan full-bodied red from the Montsant wine region. Ripe prune dried herbs, berries flavours and leathery notes can be found on the palate finishing long with blueberry and cherry notes. Tannins are grippy. Decant for two hours and pear with a game sausage cassoulet. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
