Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Quite a nice wine for the price, with aromas of blackberry, vanilla, tobacco, and a little violet. The mouth-feel is quite round and soft, with tastes of blackberry and cherry dominating. A great burger wine I would think, although I found it paired quite nicely with a somewhat spicy spaghetti and meat sauce as well.
Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

This dry, medium-bodied and woody red displays a simple and medium nose. On the palate, its refreshing acidity, smooth tannins, and broad texture precede a medium finish.

Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

Ce vin rouge sec au corps moyen et boisé démontre un nez simple et moyen. Au palais, son acidité rafraîchissante, ses tannins doux et sa grosse texture préccdent le fini moyen.

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.
