Natalie's Score: 87/100

Vintages Wine Panel: Winner of a Silver Medal at the Concours Interprofessionnel des Grands Vins de Corbières 2008. This blend of Carignan, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Grenache from vines (average age) 35 years old, features a highly expressive nose of raspberry, strawberry, mineral and garrigue. Dry, full flavoured and crisp with supple tannins. The fruits and minerality replay nicely on the palate. My note: A simple, rustic rough-and-ready red that’s very tasty! Robust aromas and flavours of blackberry, black raspberry and cassis. Some cedary notes lie underneath. Yum squared.

Carignan Syrah Mourvèdre Grenache food pairings: roast leg of lamb with garlic, roast rock Cornish hen in a reduction sauce with cardamom and spices.

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.
