Monique Sosa rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Nice little Bordeaux blend at a great value. The most intense aromas include: black cherry, black plum, cassis, leather, smoke and some earthiness. These notes mostly repeat on the palate but there is an added greeness (dried herbs) on the finish (medium). Tannins are smooth (medium, trending light) and body is not robust but still medium. This is a pretty easy table wine to pair with grilled red meat.
Martha Kelly AIWS rated this wine as 82/100 with the following review:

Medium ruby in colour, this Merlot, Cabernet Franc blend with grainy tannins and mouthwatering acidity, has flavours of cassis, plum, cedar, tobacco leaf, coarse black earth, and bitter almond. This wine is lacking in flavour what the aromas promise.
Drink now, or keep until 2015.
Pair with gourmet burgers, or kebabs from the grill.
Date tasted: March 2014.
Heather Wall rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Good entry level Right Bank Bordeaux. C;ear medium ruby with some slow legs on the glass.A blend of Canernet(Franc) and Merlot. Medium+ intensityaromas of black fruit(cassis, blackberry, plum),candied cherry, violets,fresh grass, cloves, vanilla, smoke, tobacco leaf, black pepper.
Dry, grippy tannins, medium+ alcohol, medium(-) body. The palate is a pleaser with black fruit repeated, cranberry, eucalyptus, leather, almond. A juicy wine with a medium+ length on the tannic finish.
Drink now with potential for short term cellaring. Decanting suggested.

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.
