Jennifer Havers rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Tasted in 2021. This is a Bordeaux-style blend. The 2015 vintage is made from 60% Merlot, 27% Malbec, and 13% Cabernet Franc. Aromas of plum, blackberry and woodsmoke. Full bodied on the palate, with medium-high acidity, and a smooth texture with some soft tannins. Fruit is ripe, but a bit muted, with some hints of anise, dried herbs and smoke on the finish. I would drink this in the next year or so and enjoy with grilled portobello mushroom steaks.
Jon Steeves rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Fantastic density, depth of concentration. Unfortunately I perceived a rubber latex on the palate which distracted me from the deeply concentrated red and black fruit. I’d love to taste another bottle in case this was an off bottle. 87 points
Monique Sosa rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Spicy, smoky and tangy! Aromas show instense floral, black, leather and allspice notes while the palate shows concentrated cassis flavours with lingering anise, allspice and clove notes. Tannins and mild to moderate balanced by a high mouthwatering acidity and a long spice finish. Enjoy this full-bodied Mertiage-style blend with herdbed and peppercorn rubbed roasted beef tenderloin.

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.
