Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

A lovely Burgundian expression of Pinot. Raspberry, morello cherry, white pepper, crushed stone and a faint note of beetroot make this a perfect pairing for duck. 91 Points.
Jane Staples rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Elegant and balanced, crafted from 100% PEC fruit. Shows lots of red plums, cherries, earth, with mocha, white pepper and characterisitic County minerality. Taught and well-structured, with excellent acidity. Look for it in Vintages in Sept. 2019

L.J. Palmer rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Taste of Ontario 2019 @ Ottawa: Medium ruby colour, dry, and medium plus acidity. Definite earthy and pepper aroma with bright red fruit. Tastes are of red fruit, earthiness, pepper accompanied by a pleasing tang. This would be very nice with braised beef and mushrooms; heavy on the mushrooms!

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.
