Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Consistently good each year. I also like that they have a gauge on the bottle to show you the optimal serving temperature. Aromas of plum and blackberry with some black pepper. Full bodied and smooth on the palate, with soft tannins and bright acidity. Fruit flavours are plush amd round. Enjoy with marinated beef kebabs.

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.
