Natalie's Score: 89/100

Coffee, mocha and dark chocolate on the nose from toasty oak aging. Fleshy blackberries and round, black plums on the palate of this delicious, full-bodied red wine. Smooth and supple. This is the Pacific Northwest’s largest winery, but it also produces some of the region's best wines. Highly recommended.

Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: pepper steak, hearty meat dishes, hard cheese, smoked meats, hamburger.

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.
