Reviews and Ratings

Finca Sophenia Reserve (2015) is an Argentinean Cabernet Sauvignon from Tupungato in the Mendoza wine region. The vineyard is at an altitude of 4000 feet. Parcel selection of grapes, canopy management such as selective pruning were employed; grapes were hand-harvested and sorted. Grapes were cold macerated for eight days, fermented at controlled temperatures for 12 days and wine was aged in French and American oak for 10 to 12 months prior to bottling. This Cab Sauv. is complex, intense and needs some cellaring time to tame some of those incredible tannins. - 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.
