Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

An enigmatic Bordeaux style blend of Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec from Perseus Winery. This Invictus is their 10th anniversary wine! Beautiful deep and inky with a diverse, elegant bouquet; Dark plum, black cherry, dates, cigar box, licorice with hints of savoury herbs and spicy chocolate. Flavours echo with some dark cherry freshness, balsamic sweetness and polished peppercorns. Acidity is restrained but met with a medium plus body, distinctly well integrated tannins and a smoky vanilla bean persistency. Invictus is victorious. This will be a stellar match for lamb chops, or a grilled bone-in ribeye steak. 93 points - tasted July 2018




Natalie's Review

Perseus Winery Invictus 2014, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia BC VQA, Canada: This stunning BC red wine emerges from the arid desert of the southern Osoyoos region in the Okanagan Valley. This robust Bordeaux blend offers great concentration of flavour, depth and complexity. Juicy and concentrated with incredible depth and a satisfying bite on the finish. Aromas of fleshy blackberry and dark plum with spice. Pair with a rare filet mignon. Drink: 2018-2024. 462887 14.50% XD 750 mL  $48.95 Score: 94/100. June 23, 2018 Top Rated Red Wine.  Full Review

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.
