Natalie's Score: 92/100

Fleshy dark fruit, pepper and cedar forest plus on the nose of this fabulous southern French red wine. Full-bodied and fairly smooth but it will help to decant 2 hours. Terrific price for this savoury, mouth-watering red that will pair perfectly with grilled meats.

Grenache Syrah Carignan food pairings: rare steak, rustic stew, game pot pie.

Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

I love this blend. Lots of ripe red berry, smoke, cedar, spice and currant on the nose. Medium + body, nicely balanced, smooth, fruit and savory notes mingle nicely. Serve with braised lamb shanks and enjoy.
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

First impression is wow, a burst of dried fruit, figs and almost over-ripe strawberry. Ruby red, declared 14% ABV. Alcohol is integrating. I enjoyed this wine on it's own. Would pair well with a cheese platter and cured meats or with a thin crust black olive, goats cheese and cured ham pizza. Tasted Jan 2017. rated 89/100. BespokeTastings.ca
Melanie Aubert rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Black cherry, vanilla and leather on the nose, leading to raspberry, red apple, plum, cedar, and herbs on the palate.
It's full bodied with slightly grippy tannins, but it's the acidity that causes your mouth to water even after the wine has left it that makes you keep coming back to your glass. This is a very food-friendly wine that would pair well with red meat dishes.
This Grenache, Syrah, and Carignan red wine blend from the Côtes Du Roussillon-Villages in the Midi of France is full on cherry and blackberry compote. Fresh acidity and balance to fruit with a long liquorice finish are the hallmarks of this wine. Ready to drink now. - 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.
