Natalie's Score: 88/100

Vintages Wine Panel: A Silver Medal winner at the Decanter World Wine Awards in 2010, this is a ripe and spicy wine. My note: Gorgeous black and red cherries with liqueur-like concentration of flavour. Full-bodied with a tannic grip so decant for 1-2 hours. Some savoury meaty notes and a nice long finish. Very balanced.

Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: charcuterie, grilled sausages, Catalan-style beef stew with chocolate.

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.
