Heather Wall rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Inky and juicy with blackberry, blueberry, cherry, prune, raisin on the nose. There seems to be a lot more on the palate with this wine. Baked cherry tarts, raisin and prune once again, licorice, sweet baking spices, vanilla, leather. A long baked fruit finish. Tannins are polishing and acidity is medium. This is a big elegant wine. An oxymoron? Maybe. Very nice now but has potential to age. I'd like to taste this in 10 years. Loved this wine.

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

A Grenache/Mourvedre blend with a nose of stewed fruit & raisins.The palate shows lots of dark stewed fruit, smoke, herbal touches, slight salinity and ripe red fruit. Very harmonious and smooth with a silky smooth-complex finish. A beauty.

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.
