Eamonn Donnelly rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, a product from Bordeaux's left bank Haut Medoc region. Deep garnet in the glass. Intense aromas of prune, cassis and dried fruit. Elegant and complex, showing persistent evolution as it opens. Exotic spice, bitter chocolate and tobacco dance with a brooding earthiness. The wine is dry with high, finely integrated tannins. Very intensely flavoured. Plum, black cherry, cedar and spice all while showing a savoury edginess. A long finish with persistent tannic length. Outstanding. Developing nicely.
Pair with a herb crusted roast leg of lamb. Salty aged cheeses - Comte.
Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Cab Sauve/Merlot left bank Bordeaux blend. Deeply garnet coloured with ever evolving and pronounced intensity of aromas consisting of prunes, dried fruit, cassis, sweet spice, vanilla, smoke, nutmeg, tobacco, cedar, leather and a touch of fennel seed. Also pronounced flavour intensities of plums, black cherry, raisin, fig, leather toast and bitter chocolate. High alcohol and tannin, M+ body and finish with M acidity. Still developing, can drink now but will benefit from further aging too.
Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

The nose on this wine was very subtle but on the palate it was a well balanced, full bodied, smooth wine with a complex finish. Decanted 2 hours prior. Paired well with beef. Tasted December 2016.

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.
