Heather Wall rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Rhone value at $22. Deep and dark aura with subtle earthiness and wet fisherman's sweater in the supporting cast. Cassis, blackcurrant leaf, dried red/black fruit, black pepper make the A list. Good refreshing acidity help with the youthful tannins. A couple of years in the cellar will bring some softness - or decant for 2+ hours if enjoyed today. Needs a nice cut of red meat or a rack of lamb.
Tasted: October 2016
Jane Staples rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Dark fruit and spicy pepper nose, followed by dark fruit, dried berries, raisins, spice and tea on the palate. Very smooth, well-balanced, with terrific structure, smooth tannins and a silky finish.
Tasted Oct. 2016
Jacky Blisson rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Medium ruby fading to orange. Intriguing nose featuring barnyard aromas mingled with ripe raspberry and floral undertones. Quite a bold, dense style of Côtes du Rhône, with balanced acidity. While undeniably well-made, there is a lack of that southern Rhône generosity of fruit. The palate is very tightly knit and the tannins are quite muscular. Needs time to soften.

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.
