Dark plum colour with a nose reminiscent of black cherries with a touch of
cinnamon and cloves. Brimming with ripe raspberry and blackberry fruit
with a touch of white pepper and dill; this Cab finishes with notes of
currants and strawberry rhubarb pie filling.

Food pairing: Lamb chops with mint jelly, beef and porcini mushrooms in an oyster sauce,
or even big veal meatballs in a rich tomato sauce over your favourite pasta
would pair well with this Cabernet. With enough structure to stand up to
hearty dishes, its fruit is enough to enjoy as the appetizer itself.

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.
