Jay Denney rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A kid sibling to the bigger and bruter Bin 0 and Thomson Family offerings, the Bin 1 Shiraz combines the quality of Best's with a weekday wine price. Rich with black fruits, including mulberry and chokechery jam, and a touch of menthol, this is quite a mouthful. Structured, yet smooth, this one can be pop'n poured alongside a braised beef poutine as I enjoyed.
Neil Phillips rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Bing cherries, blackberries, dark plums, mocha and a hint of mint.

Mid-way between savoury and jammy, this is a pleasant Shiraz that will do well on its own or with food. Smooth finish.

Tasted January 2019.

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.
