Mocha-dark chocolate with fleshy black plum aromas on the nose of this full-bodied Merlot. Delicious and dependable. Don't listen to Miles (from the movie Sideways), try this with burgers.

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.
