Reviews and Ratings

Julian Park rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

On the nose, sour cherry and ripe plum with a hint of leather and tobacco leaf. It was interesting that the wine had lost most of the tobacco aroma when tried the following day.
A full-bodied wine with strong acidity and a silky texture.
Flavours of black cherry, plum jam, leather, dark chocolate, tobacco and earthy tones.
The perfect wine to pair with burgers fresh from the BBQ.
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

So much flavour, and perfect for late summer BBQ's. Aromas of plum, blackberry, smoke, and spice. Medium+ bodied, with lighter tannins, and bright, mouthwatering acidity on the palate, along with ripe, plush dark fruit, and a spicy, smoky finish. Enjoy with BBQ ribs or pork.

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.
