Natalie's Score: 91/100

This rich red wine offers pleasant notes of black fruit, dark chocolate and smoke. Atemporal translates to timeless in Spanish - time will fly when you're enjoying this wine. This is a blend of several red grapes. No time like the present.

Food pairings: meat lovers pizza, gourmet hamburgers.

More Wine Reviews and Ratings

Louise Wilson ISG Sommelier rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Offering a bouquet of black fruit swirled in vanilla and milk chocolate, followed by a full bodied palate loaded with rich velvety plum and black cherry fruit flavours. Excellent value. Enjoy over the next 6 years.
Jane Staples Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Hand-harvested blend of Malbec, Cab Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Rich red fruit and floral aromas, rich palate with red and dark berries, red plums, coffee, chocolate, vanilla and oak. Soft tannins, good structure, long fruity finish. A great match with beef or lamb. Put it on your Father's Day wish list!
The grapes for this full-bodied red wine are grown in the same terroir located in Mendoza's Uco Valley, 3200 feet above sea level in the foothills of the Cordillera de los Andes. All three varieties of grapes in the blend are hand harvested and vinified separately in concrete tanks then aged in French oak barrels for 12 months. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
