Sharon Lécuyer rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Bouquet of barnyard, smoke and leather. Flavours of blackberry. I found this too fruity for a steak. I would pair with BBQed pork or beef.

Colin McKone rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

This Syrah & Grenache blend from the Langdon region of France is ruby in colour with aromas cassis, black cherry, mint and cedar. It is medium bodied, with light tannins and well intergrated acidity and alcohol. The cassis and black cherry follow through on the plate. This will pair well with red meats and is a terrific value wine for the price. (Tasted on March 26, 2017)
Melissa Pulvermacher reviewed this wine as follows:

One of my favourite wines from this portfolio as its quality stresses the value of this wine for $16.95 in LCBO Vintages. The active diurnal range has a huge effect on cooling these grapes in the evening adding tension and depth.

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.
