Yujie rated this wine as 88/100
Jane Staples rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Delicious aromas of cassis and blackberry with gentle spice on the nose, followed by a rich palate of ripe dark cassis, blackberry, vanilla and baking spice. Smooth and velvety, well-balanced with just the right touch of acidity; everything you want in a Cab Sauv. Long silky fruit finish. Perfect with a steak. Try it and you'll see why this is one of the LCBO's favourite Cabs.
Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

A deep ruby colour with rich purple hues. The aromas are of blackberry and plum with a hint of blueberry, and some chocolate and toasted oak overtones. On the palate, expect berries, chocolate and smoky toasted oak. The flavours are rich and full, with a soft, supple texture and a lingering finish.

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.

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.
