Natalie's Score: 88/100

Vintages Wine Panel: Made with the classic Port grapes: 40% Tinta Roriz, 40% Touriga Franca, and 20% Touriga Nacional. There are lovely sweet notes in the midst of this dry red, with lots of black-berry, cocoa, raspberry, spicy oak and blackcurrant jam on the palate. Medium-full bodied and supple, with nice balance and length. My note: Blackberry jam and meaty flavours. Full-bodied and smooth. A very chewy wine in the best sense. Perfect for people who like to make long-winded arguments… this wine will make them pause for you to get a word in edge-wise.

Tinta Roriz Touriga Franca food pairings: robust beef stew, aged cheese.

Ryan Hindmarsh rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Welcome to Portugal. This is made from the same grapes as Port, so its nice and tasty but without the sugary headache. Grab some Balderson cheddar and say hello to the neighbors as you sip this on your front stoop.

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.
