Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A very nice Pinot Noir with a blend of fruity, floral, and earthy characteristics. Nose leads with red cherry, raspberry, and strawberry, also showing violets and rhubarb, and finally earthy, mushroom, leather, briar, and beetroot notes. High acid, medium body, and softer tannins. Palate reflects the nose while bringing in cedar, cola, and cocoa notes. Stunning alongside pork, tortiere, and turkey dishes.
Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

@CreeksideWine Pale garnet colour with brick ruby reflections. Pronounced aromas of cherry cola, licorice, violets, earthy soil, mushrooms and touches of tobacco, compost and wooden furniture. Flavours feature sour cherries, raspberries, clay minerals and a stemmy cedar woodiness. Bone dry, high acidity, with a light body. Medium tannins and a finish with cranberry notes persisting. This is a fine pair for pork tenderloin with balsamic raspberry reduction. Tasted February 2018 - 87 points

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.
