Emilie Ryan rated this wine as 82/100 with the following review:

A decent Pinot Noir…
Presentation: A nice, distinctive, modern, classy label, really like it.
Appearance: Light-medium ruby red
Nose: Cherries, wood, meat, herbs, asparagus
Taste: Cherries, herbs, wood, plums, and a little bitter
Finish: Cherries and bitter but not a long finish at all, kind of fall flat
Overall impression: A decent Pinot Noir, good value. I had it with cured meats and cheeses, and it paired rather well. With the twist top, don’t expect it to age; though admittedly, I’ve never been a fan of twist tops, so I may be biased here.
Value: 3.5/5
Jennifer Havers rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Lots of ripe and fresh berries on the nose, a little bit of moss or earth, but overall quite fresh. Smooth, light tannin, lighter acid than expected, and primarily ripe berry coming through on the palate. A fairly straightforward Pinot but would be great with burgers or sausages. Great price point!
Sylvain Segard rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Classic red berries with scented flowery nose on a humid forest floor. Rond fruit mouthfeel and balanced acidity and integrated tannin. Should prove lovely with porc filet and mushrooms.
Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Lovely bouquet of violet and ripe cherries. This wine is medium bodied with supple, well integrated tannins, and a smooth finish. Nice accompaniment to grilled sausage.

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.
