Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Dark skinned plum, cherry, dark chocolate and vanilla, liquorice and even a touch of caramel. On the palate this evolves into jam laden fruitiness, cherry, and super ripe strawberry. Also a touch of sweet herbs, blackberry and cassis. Medium acidity, body and finish. Tannins are present but not overwhelming. Off dry and Fairly well balanced. A pretty decent blend of Baco and Cabernet Sauvignon. Can pair with tacos, beef strew or on just on its own. 86 points November 2019
Nicole Lewis rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Dark garnet cloaked and offering chocolate, ripe cherry, stewed fruit and oak on the nose - nice full-bodied, moderate acidity ripe fruit wine. Good quality for this price point. A good red meat wine.

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

A softer nose of red and black fruit combined. Crisp acids balanced by some obvious residual sugar - which it needs. I like the hamburger food match.

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.
