Reviews and Ratings

Christian Marcoux rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Introducing the Foreign Affair Winery, Temptress 2015, another Canadian winner; Decanter International Wine Award 2018 and the Ontario Wine Award 2018. Located on the bench of the Niagara Peninsula, the Temptress 2015 is crafted from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec and Petit Verdot - all hand harvested and dried apassimento style - providing rich aromas of dark skin plum, red cherry, raspberry, black tea, fresh herbs, chocolate milk, vanilla, leather and oak. Full bodied with a bold finish, the Temptress exposes the Italian roots of winemaking with luscious flavors of red cherry, raspberry, plum, fern, spice, tea, caramel, pepper, mushroom and oak. Complex and balanced, this wine offers a taste of world acclaimed wine making

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty 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.
