Reviews and Ratings

The 2012 vintage will be the first vintage with famed winemaker Jean Claude Berrouet of Pomerol, Chateau Petrus as an exclusive consulting winemaker working closely with Fabian Valenzuela the current winemaker at Bodega Tapiz. Mr. Berrouet is one of the most famous winemakers and is involved in every facet of the process from vineyard to wine. What an incredible wine for this price! Full-bodied with attractive aromas of blackberry and cassis. Good balance with a long, satisfying finish. This winery produces other terrific reds as well, so keep an eye out for this producer. Pair this wine with a juicy, rare steak and full-bodied conversation tonight. Decant for 1 hour. MINE: Fincas Patagónicas produced this Argentine red wine made from Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. The 2012 vintage has lots of black fruit and oak flavours. OTHER: This is sourced from three premium high altitude vineyards: One in Maipú (800m) and two in Luján de Cuyo (930 and 1050m). OTHER: Aromas of blackberry and briar patch expand to include violet notes. In the mouth, there's pulpy weight to the fruit and rubbery tannins for framing. Rugged but generic black-fruit flavors finish with toasty darkness and some burn. Score - 88 (Michael Schachner, Wine Enthusiast, Oct. 1, 2016). - 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.
