John Szabo, MS

A vibrant, leafy, floral, liquorice seed-scented malbec from Cahors, lively and engaging, energetic and juicy. I love the honest, succulent palate, the saliva-inducing acids, the pure drinkability of this wine. Tasted April 2016. Value Rating: ***
Alex & Priya rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Priya: Smells slightly musty and smoky over a strawberry rhubarb pie. If you're a fan of Argentinian Malbec, this won't be your style as it's way less fruity and way more on the dry side. The only fruit I detect is sour cherries, if that sounds good you'll want to give this a try. 86pts

Alex: My lady I'm in utter disagreement here. There's sourness yes, from good acidity, but there's also a whack of cherry pie and plum fruit here. And I don't feel this is so far off Argentina Malbec, It's fruity, gentle and supple on the palate, with less tannin and more polish than your typical Cahors. Despite this modern approach, here's a really well-made wine, fruity yet very mineral-driven on the palate, expert winemaking and balance, with stuffing and length well above the price. 90pts

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.

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.
