A vibrant Cali Merlot with aromas of berry fruit, black cherry, sweet pepper and spice cupboard. Dry with good fruit ably balanced by fine acidity. Moderate tannins also bring a nice balance to the wine. Cellar it 1-3 years. Source: Vintages Wine Panel

  Best Books of the Year

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.
