Natalie's Score: 93/100

Luscious, juicy and generous with rich aromas and flavours of black and purple plums and blueberries. Supple and smooth and full-bodied. Perfect for BBQ meats.  Finishes with black raspberry and some pepper. This is a blockbuster wine but it doesn't overwhelm your palate, senses or food. Try it with roast beef.

Zinfandel food pairings: char-grilled burgers, ribs, lamb, pizza, turkey dinner, wings.

Mike Scotten reviewed this wine as follows:

Great Zinfandel. Smooth not heavy at all
Vibrant with great balance and tension between fleshy ripe fruit and layered complexity. Some vanilla spice on the finish. Perfect for BBQ! - Community Wine Reviews

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.
