Aged in oak barrels, the dark garnet 2006, composed of Tannat, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, opens on notes of vanilla, relayed by red and black fruit with a filigree of green tea. The supple attack announces a palate that is both warm and cool, the latter quality enhanced by vegetal accents and mild tannins which assure that two or three years aging should make this nicely rounded. Duck with olives would be a wonderful match. Source: Guide Hachette

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.
