Natalie's Score: 90/100

Vintages Wine Panel: A Gold Medal winner at the 2009 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition. This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from five Paso Robles vineyards, with the majority coming from the winery’s estate vineyard. It’s already drinking wonderfully with lovely blackcurrant, cassis and wild-berry flavors as well as well-balanced sweet oak notes and refined tannins. An eye-catching (and palate-pleasing) addition to the dinner table. My note: Get in the groove with this delicious Cabernet. It’s packed with aromas of black plum, blackberry, currants, dark spices and dried tobacco leaves. A firm structure and full-bodied texture take you right through to a finish that rolls on for several minutes. Enjoy!

Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: rack of lamb, rosemary covered pork tenderloin, beef stew.

More Wine Reviews and Ratings

Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:

I have tasted this wine once before and decided to stock up on it. This beautifully aromatic wine is dominated by cherry followed by black currant, bilberry, oak + vanilla and almond tastes. It is smooth, slightly earthy and chalky. The alcohol is high 15.2%, but not at all intrusive, together with refined tannins this wine should age gracefully for 10 years at least. Body of this wine is medium, finish is long. My impression: BEAUTIFUL TO DIVINE. This wine could cost up to $40 and still be worth it. I am glad this wine is part of my cellar. Tasted Feb/10 and Jan/10.

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.
