Full-bodied palate with big black fruit and smoke notes. Enjoy with beef kebabs or gourmet burgers. Seductive dark spice and wild violets on the finish. Plush, generous and layered, this is a lovely blend of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes that would be terrific with meat lovers' pizza.

Produced by the Harvey Family, the Chalk Hill winery is called Wits' End in North America so as not to be confused with the Chalk Hill winery from Sonoma, California. This robust Australian wine is a blend of Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes for the 2012 vintage. Given it's called The Procrastinator, I'm surprised they ever got it bottled. - 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.
