Monique Sosa rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

What a promising Spanish red! This wine is an enticing blend of Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Tempranillo and Garnacha grapes showcasing sweet and savoury characteristic. The nose shows pronounced aromas of ripe berries, plum, vanilla, dates, and licorice. The palate is a burst of licorice, black plum, vanilla, dark chocolate. Tannins are mature and smooth, acidity is well-balanced (med+), and the finish is long with note dried druit notes, licorice and a satin mouthfeel. This med-full bodied gem of a wine is a steal! Enjoy with a scrumptious backyard BBQ. Tasted July 2016. @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
Ashley Quesnel reviewed this wine as follows:

Aromatic notes of floral, cherry, blueberry and vanilla. Medium-bodied and elegant with a smooth mouthfeel. Pair with lamb burgers or hard cheeses. Excellent value.
Jane Staples rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:

From Castiila, Spain the esteemed Gonzalez-Byass Winery in Toledo produces this full-bodied and flavourful dry blend of Tempranillo, Cab Sauv, Syrah, Cab Franc, Petit Verdot & Graciano. A perfumed nose offers ripe dark fruit, vanilla and floral violet, while the complex palate gives dark fruit, vanilla, spices and oak in a supple, smooth mouthfeel with great acidity. Versatile for barbeque or grilled lamb chops and hard cheeses. Terrific value at $16.95

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.
