Jane Staples rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A Shiraz-Cab Franc blend with a fragrant nose of red fruit, vanilla & baking spice. Juicy palate shows lots of red fruit, spice, vanilla & oak. Dry with a well- balanced mouthfeel and a long spicy red fruit finish.
Matt Steeves rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A blend of Shirza, Cab Franc, Cab Sauv, and Merlot, from the terrific 2012 vintage, the colour is medium deep ruby red, the nose shows grilled peppers, scorched earth,and black berry. Medium-full bodied, with great fruit concentration, this is a wine built to be enjoyed with virtually any BBQ fare. Well structured, I'd recommend enjoying with gourmet burgers or flank steak sandwhiches. Tasted April 2015. 89+ points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca

Red, White & Drunk all over by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean writes about wine with a sensuous obsession... and often laugh-out-loud funny... Terrific.

Ms. MacLean is the disarming Everywoman. She loves wine, loves drinking ... ultimately, it's a winning formula.

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.
