Carola Price rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Clear and cherry red to core. Nose black pepper, stewed black fruit, and smokey oak. In the mouth it tastes like a warm night by the fire at the chalet. Black fruit that isn't too jammy, plum, black pepper and some cedar/ smokey notes. It has a medium body and doesn't finish with too much alcohol. Pair with beef pot roast or mushroom ravioli in a rich mushroom, herb and pepper cream. Drink now to 3 years.
Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

An abundance of red and black fruit on the nose with some oaky and wood flavors along with a dash of pepper. Finishes with soft tannins.
Jacky Blisson rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Medium, translucent ruby in colour. Stewed black and red fruits, with underlying cedar and tobacco leaf notes. The fresh acidity is nicely counterbalanced by the medium body, plush texture, velvetty tannins and cedar oak flavour. The finish is slightly warm, with a touch of astringency.

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.
