Reviews and Ratings

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

Beautiful! Aromas of blackberry, black currants, violets, warm baking spice, graphite, and a hint of vanilla. Full bodied and smooth with mouthwatering acidity, and ripe jammy fruit. Smoke, leather, and spicy notes on the finish. Enjoy with steak or grilled pork.
Christian Marcoux rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

The Strewn Terroir Cabernet Franc 2016, from the beautiful Niagara wine region, shows aromas of strawberry, blueberry jam, violet, tree moss, chocolate milk cocoa and oak. Balanced and full-bodied, the wine’s tannins are well knit through to the long finish. Palate: tart plum, raspberry, black pepper, new leather, spice, tobacco and oak. Enjoy!
Pam Hatton rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Deep ruby core with lots of fresh red and black fruit, blueberry, vanilla, some baking spices and just a fleeting floral scent. Rich berry, cedar, vanilla and a bit of leather on the palate. Dry finish but the acidity makes it juicy.

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.
