Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Red fruit and earth nose with cranberry and spice on the palate. Finishes with a nice tartness. Pair with lamb or salmon.
Terry Jeans rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

The estate grown 2013 Red Paw Pinot Noir, is hand picked from stony claw soils found in the Niagara region and fermented in French oak for 15 months. It is a light ruby color, but it has a fantastic flavour profile of cherries, woodiness, fresh earth, cranberries, that also comes through on the nose. It is well structured and approachable because of it's delicate balance. I had this with some smoked salmon and it was a great pairing, but it is a versatile food wine that would cater to many dishes. Or it is just perfect on it's own!
Courtney Flood rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Cherry, mushroom, raspberry, damp earth, cut herb and a touch of toasted sesame. Very tart and herbal.
Alex & Priya rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

Alex: Blue cotton candy, cream, hung meat, cranberry and strawberry nose. Quite a dollop of vanilla as well. Quite layered on the palate, but a bit coarse of the finish. Still, fine complexity and juicy strawberry fruit. Pair with meatballs in marinara sauce. 86pts

Priya: Funny that Alex says to pair it with meatballs because I was going to say it smells like a spicy meatball! It smells hot and tastes a bit hot and spicy as well. I'm not a pinot noir gal so this isn't quite my kind of wine. 84pts
Philippe Perreault rated this wine as 81/100 with the following review:

Clear ruby color.

Aromas of strawberry, dry raspberry, plum, spice, herb and oak.

On the palate, this Pinot Noir is smooth, medium-bodied and long.

Pair it with grilled meat.

Serve it at 15-16 degrees.

Ready to drink.
Jennifer Havers rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Aromas include tart cherry, some earthy mushroom, a bit of white pepper. Aromas are tight at first but open up with some air in the glass. Lots of tart, almost sour cherry on the palate and a bit of smokiness.
I would like to enjoy this with charcuterie and cheese.
Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Red fruit on the nose with a bit of spice and earthiness also coming through on the palate. Medium bodied with a sour candy finish.
Sylvain Segard rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Light intensity ruby color. Gentle red fruit aroma with white pepper. Full bodied but with a softer medium-light mouth feel. Good acidity. Medium-long finish of sour fruit. Will pair with mushroom risotto or grilled fowl.

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.
