Reviews and Ratings

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Vibrant ruby red, well balanced juicy red berry, blackberry fruit with a tart cherry undertone, savoury herbal notes of black sage, baking spice. Medium acidity, integrated alcohol, medium tannins. A sure crowd pleaser. Paired well with beef and lentil chilli. Tasted Dec 2016. Rated 89/100. Bespoketastings.ca
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Lovely black plum, cassis and floral notes with of leather and gamey notes. The palate is smooth with mellow tannins, moderate acidity, and off-dry ripe berry fruit notes. This wine is a touch on the sweeter side of red wine blends for my taste. Enjoy this medium bodied red with spicy beef or turkey chili. Tasted Dec 2016 - @sommsosa / bespoketastings.ca

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.
