Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Robust and full of flavour!! This lovely Meritage is blended from 50% Merlot, 32% Petite Verdot, and 18% Cabernet Sauvignon. Aromas include lots of dark fruit, eucalyptus, chocolate, coffee, cedar and smoke. Full bodied, bright acidity, structured tannins, and nice balance of fruit, spicy and smoky notes. Enjoy with braised beef short ribs.

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.
