Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Sheer decadence in the glass - aromatic plum and cassis on the inviting bouquet with a flavors of tobacco, coffee grinds, pepper, cigar box, leather and blackberry. The tannins grip the inside of the mouth with layers of chocolate dipped blueberries and dark chocolate shavings coming through on the mid palate. The finish is long with black licorice and spice. Superb! Drink now or cellar for a few years.




Natalie's Review

Glenelly Lady May Cabernet Sauvignon 2011, Stellenbosch W.O., South Africa: Juicy ripe black plum aromas and flavours on the nose and palate of this this delightful South African Cabernet Sauvignon. Supple on the palate and full-bodied but balanced. The label shows a sculpture by the French artist Maxim Real Del Sarte of the winemaker May de Lencqesaing when she was just 23 years old. This wine is aged for 24 months in new French old barrels. Pair with a rare steak. Drink: 2018-2021. 480426 14.50% D 750 mL  $34.95 Score: 91/100. March 3, 2018 Top Rated Red Wine.

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.
