Jennifer Havers rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Tasted in 2023, this is a lovely wine still showing as quite youthful but starting to show a bit of maturity. Blended from Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec. Aromas of blueberry and black cherry along with hints of cassis, and notes of dried herbs, a touch of vanilla and some warm spice. Full bodied, with bright acidity, and some soft, subtle tannins on the palate. Slight hints of dried and ripe fruit, along with a slight tea-like note and herbaceous spicy hints on the finish. Enjoy with slow braised beef.
Greg Hughes rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

A collaboration between Group de Taillan and Constellation Brands. A big Bordelais style blend from one of the coolest places in Canada for wines of this style. This is a more approachable one than it normally is. Usually, this one has to go in the cellar for a long while. This may not keep as long, but you get everything you want with less waiting. Yum.
Ruby red, with lots of juicy fruit on the aromatics. Macerated cherry and berries. Chicory, and vanilla too. Very pleasant.
The flavours are equally fresh and fruity. Blueberry, cherry, blackberries, with well integrated oak.
Pair with roast duck and turnip.

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.
