Reviews and Ratings

Julia Kelada rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:

For an almost $20 and under wine, this has to be the star of that category. Presenting true nuances of a Ripasso done well.
On the nose there are wild hedgerow fruit of black berries, logan berries, juniper berries and finally cranberries. Terroir tones of hedgerow undergrowth.

On the palate there are again the wild fruits of black berries, redcurrants, juniper berries, cranberries, cooked plums and dried dates. Terroir tones of dried earth from the roots of hedgerow undergrowth intermingle with the notes of hot, dry backed terra cotta releasing notes of minerality. Tones of oak and smooth vanilla blend together before releasing herbal tones of bay leaves. Weathered leather and espresso beans step and release velvety tannins. A last spice of nutmeg and cloves end the journey with a smooth and lengthy finish.

Delicious served with an array of cheeses, walnuts and dried fruits, or a roasted lemon and herbed chicken roasted with garlic roasted potatoes.

Bottoms up!

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.
