Natalie's Score: 89/100

Vintages Wine Panel: Located in the heart of the Colchagua Valley, Casa Silva is one of Chile’s finest estates. This family winery has received numerous awards including ‘Best Winery of the Continent’ honors in the South American Guide. With every vintage they seem to raise the bar. This ultra-ripe Carmenère is a blockbuster with loads of blackberry, prune, graphite, leather, and spice aromas. It is dry with rich fruit tones surrounded by intriguing herbal notes and fine tannins which add complexity and intrigue. My note: Stunning vale/taste for the money. Full-bodied with dark plum and mint aromas. Lovely long finish.

Carmenère Reserva food pairings: meat dishes, meatballs, beef bourguignonne, pot roast.

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.
