Reviews and Ratings

Barón De Ley (2016) is a robust rosé from the Rioja wine region is great value here for under $20. Intense raspberry, cranberry and citrus orange on the nose and palate of this robust rosado made from a blend of Tempranillo and Grenache red wine grapes. The winery was constructed by the Count of Eguía in 1548 as a castle-fortress. In those times, the Count of Eguía owned a 1,000 hectare estate on the banks of the Ebro. Over the years the Imas fortress and estate became a Benedictine property. Imas in its Benedictine days was never a particularly religious or intellectual centre, but a great asset because of its location. The Benedictine order owned 80% of the wool-producing sheep in Navarre at that time, mainly grazing on the slopes of the Urbasa and Idiazábal mountains with flocks at the Imas estate because of climate and abundance of water. The Benedictine monks were also experts in making wines and spirits. Grapes from the vines planted at Imas were tipped into stone fermenting tanks in the monastery courtyard, so that after treading them the must could then be transferred into the underground cellar, where it would ferment in oak vats. - 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.
