Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

Medium garnet with aromas of raspberry, strawberry, young red cherry and a touch of green pepper and baking spices. Medium-low acidity, a touch of young tannins, and a taste centred around red cherry. This is from non vitis vinifera grapes, so you should not expect it to taste precisely like those varietals, and in my books, keep that in mind when you're tasting it. For me, this is a young, lively, medium-light wine that's a little out of the ordinary, perfect for vegetarian dishes, especially with roast celery and carrots.
Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Lots of green pepper, burnt oak, cherry and earth on the nose. Hearty fruit on the palate with a bit of tomato - blend of grapes: Xinomavro, Krassato, Stavroto. Lovely with full flavored cheeses.
Emilie Ryan rated this wine as 82/100 with the following review:

Presentation: Classic label with a nice colour palate and font. Nice presentation
Appearance: Light ruby towards garnet (slight orange tinge) colour
Nose: Leather, green bell pepper, mint, rhubarb, black pepper, smoke, peas
Taste: Dry, high acidity, medium tannins, light body, sour red fruit, leather, spices (black pepper)
Finish: Short, earth
Overall impression: A decent wine that would go well with high acidity foods (e.g., tomato-based). Could go well as a sipping wine by the fire with some cheese or dark chocolate.
Value: 5/5

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty 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.
