Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Aged 6 months in French and American oak. This is a fun blended red, with mocha, red raspberry and plums on the nose. Medium to light tannins adding some structure, a bit of acid for balance, and a nice balance of fruit and oak on the palate. Easy drinking and fun, just as promised with the Fancy Farm Girl series. Enjoy with grilled veggies or pork tenderloin at all of your summer get-togethers.
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

An approachable and accessibly priced Cab Sauv dominant Niagara blend. Fruit forward with red berries, plum on the palate. Medium acidity, medium minus tannins. Pairs well with BBQ chicken wings. Tasted 2013 vintage in Feb 2018. 86 points

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.
