Monique Sosa rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Rich robust and awesome! This wine shows gloriously layered notes of cassis, black plum, allspice, anise and black tea. Tannins, acidity, alcohol integration and flavour concentration are all superbly structured. Enjoy this full-bodied BC Cab sauv with braised beef lasagna. Tasted Dec 2016 - @sommsosa / bespoketastings.ca
Jon Steeves rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Big and bold, this wine commands attention. From the label to the nose which lead to a bold palate of concentrated dark blackberry, dill, oregano, aged earthy leather. Robust rich tannins, full-bodied, extra dry. Declared 14.1% ABV. Paired exceptionally well with a AAA beef tenderloin, roasted yellow beets and rosemary mashed potatoes. Tasted Dec 2016. Rated 93/100.

Natalie's Review

The Hatch Hatchchild Cabernet Sauvignon 2013, Similkameen Valley, British Columbia BC VQA, Canada: Juicy, full-bodied and forgiving BC Cabernet with a sense of humour ... Hatchchild is a pun on Rothschild, the coveted Bordeaux first growth wine whose symbol is the ram, thus the big shaggy goat on the label. Similar wit to the Goats do Roam winery in South Africa ... they are a breed apart ;) Drink: 2016-2027. 14% XD 750 mL Score: 92/100. January 8, 2017  Full Review

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.
