Nicole Lewis rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Wow! Try to find a Chilean Carmenère in the Vintages section of the LCBO! Cab Sauv, Cab Sauv...Cab Sauv. What's with Chile? There were two Carms. Disregard the tasting note on the back of the label (Pineapple, guava, apple)? Really? NOT! This deep, opaque, purple-y, garnet gem offers up generous aromas of fine pipe tobacco, oak, chocolately moka and ripe dark cherry. These aromas are replayed on the palate. This a dry, fruity full-bodied wine sporting medium-acidity, integrated tannins and a medium length finish. A fine pairing with a charcuterie plate or a red meat dish of your choice.

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.
