Julia Kelada rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

The look of this wine is like thin black cherry juice, I was worried it would be a bit light but after my first sniff of a fruity presence i became rather excited with anticipation that this was not one of my normal wine choices.
Now before i continue, I went for my regular Thursday night wine tasting and my sommelier said, who if you remember comes from France, so a little biased maybe! Any way, back to the story…..I expressed that I wanted a challenge, though something i would like, he knows my taste well! I wanted something that I would never consider. Now bless him, he almost skipped towards me with his choice, his eyes were definitely on an overdrive of excitement!
" Ooooo…."he chipped " and $16.55!" well i nearly fell off my stilletoes! So here is what i found.
After that initial sniff, my first taste revealed earthy brambles. It evoked wild blackberries growing in the uncultured countryside. The taste was like the smell of the earth after a light rain fall. This wine has Carignan, black Grenache and Syrah grapes….there is a heavy presence of black cherries and a spicey finish with well rounded tannins.
This wine has a fresh acidity and would go extremely well with duck or lamb and a sauce with cranberries or pomegranate .
Bottoms up!

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.
