Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Entering an advanced stage of evolution with grace. Acidity is still fresh and clean. Tannins are resolving but maintain a firm yet gentle grip. Body is in balance, pleasantly medium and in tune with what the wine needs to show its best. 2009 in Niagara was not kind to reds, but some of the finest examples of Pinot Noir came from the vintage, mostly unrivalled until 2014. The red fruit notes are very much dried fruit now, reminiscent of fruit leather. A touch of mushroom, bit mostly fruity. This delight will flatter grilled salmon and Portobello burgers.
Travis Oke rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This is the 2nd Cattail Creek wine that I've tried - this Pinot Noir was tasted at the Pinot for the People event in Guelph. Fantastic Ontario Pinot - light in colour, almost pale at the edges, very balanced and smooth - reminiscent of a French burgundy.

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.
