Jane Staples rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Dark purple/garnet with blackberry, tart blackcurrant and chocolate aromas to tantalize your nose. The satiny palate echoes the nose with more pronounced chocolate notes plus a little pepper and oak. I’m thinking a grilled strip-loin steak with garlic mash, followed by chocolate cake and Haagen Daz vanilla ice cream would suit this rich, succulent Syrah.
Tasted Sept. 9/19
Jennifer Havers rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Intense and flavourful. Aromas of black plum, white pepper, and slight vanilla hints. Full bodied and smooth on the palate, with luscious fruit on the palate and a slight spice on the finish. Enjoy with seared duck.

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.
