Nick Onischuk rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Columbia Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 features dark berry fruit, blackberry, and nice oak. This full bodied wine would pair very nicely with roast beef. Very good value! (90/100)
Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Opaque purple with aromas of smoky black, black plum, cocoa, wet stone, and a touch of earth. For taste, smoky fruit filly your mouth, with some of the chocolate and wet stone showing as well. Medium very fine tannins and medium acidity; very nicely balanced between opulent and restrained.
Jane Staples rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Ripe plums, oak and a hint of cocoa on the nose, with dark fruit, cedar, mint, cocoa and oak on the palate. Fruit flavours a bit overripe for my liking in a Cab Sauv.
Tasted Oct. 2016
Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Plum, vanilla and cedar aromas and flavors with some cinnamon and chocolate flavors on the palate. Tannis are soft in the fruit forward finish.

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.
