Natalie's Score: 92/100

Savoury and delicious with rich dark layers of black fruit and a hint of mint and smoke. Amazingly great price. Cries out for a juicy steak. Please help this wine now!

Darlene Myers CAPS Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Loved this Shiraz Cabernet. This will be a popular one this Summer as it compliments most grilled foods. Dark plum fruits and spicy oak make for a flavorful wine that is a great price.

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.
