Sharon Lécuyer rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

I'm not a Pinot Noir drinker usually and to be candid, I don't think I have ever tasted a Pinot Noir that I actually liked.....until now.

Spice on the nose that follow through along with flavours of sour cherries on the palette. Light-bodied but not simple. Lots of complexity and layers here with a nice, lingering finish. Pair this wine with a BBQ grilled chiken, Mustard-flavoured pork tenderloin and a radicchio and arugula salad.

Bill Wright Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Very rich and full of flavour. Ripe cherry. Medium-bodied with layers of complexity with a long subtle finish.
Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Red cherry, lots of violets, and a little backing spice. Very pretty. Juicy acidity, medium-low tannins, with the flavours following the aromas, making for a very pretty wine. Pair with soft cheese or before a meal to show of the delicate flavours.
Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Attention to detail here, organic with 40% whole cluster, hand harvested. Medium ruby shade in the glass. Fruity, dry, clean cherry on the nose. Burst of fruit and hint of earthiness on the palate. Nice clean mouthfeel. Medium weight, medium/long finish. Would go well with rich beef or veal dishes. Tasted March 2017.

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.
