Dean Engemoen rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:

When your nose gets close to the glass you will think it's time for breakfast. Bacon bacon bacon maple bacon oh my what a fantastic start. Keep looking and there are also some truffle, black pepper and earthy aromas hiding behind the bacon. Flavors include black plum, black cherry, vanilla and blueberry. Lively acidity and a very long finish. This is a treasure, and might be their best ever.
Jon Steeves rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Beautiful. So well balanced, with juicy and tangy plum, anise, black pepper. Paired well with BBQ chicken and roasted root vegetables. Tasted 2015 vintage in Oct 2017. 91 points

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.
