Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Beautiful BC Pinot Noir! Aromas of red cherry, raspberry, leather, smoke and black pepper. Medium bodied, with vibrant acidity and light tannins, the fruit flavours are bright and slightly tart. Smoky and leathery notes balance out the tart fruit flavours. Slight peppery hint on the finish. Enjoy with marinated flank steak with lots of peppery seasoning.
A consistently gorgeous Pinot Noir with bright cherry aromas, raspberry and white pepper aromas on the nose. Silky smooth with tart red cherry, violets, warm spice and a hint of leather. Medium-bodied with vibrant acidity for food. Pair with roast Cornish game hens. - 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.
