Natalie's Score: 92/100

Juicy, full-bodied and delicious! Fleshy ripe blackberry and black cherries lead on the nose of this robust red wine. Good layering and complexity. This is classic cool-climate Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon offering dark spice and racy acidity on the finish with deep and satisfying hint of mint refreshment. Cabernet Sauvignon thrives in Coonawarra with its limestone soils, cooling ocean winds and warm days. Straight-up pleasure! Try it with a juicy steak tonight.

Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: hamburgers , pulled pork, venison burgers, hard cheese, prime rib.

Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

This Coonawarra, South Australia Shiraz shows a lovely nose with ripe dark berries, rosemary and baking spices. A delicious palate gives raspberry, cassis, baking spice, rosemary, cumin and mocha. Bright acidity, rich and full-bodied with a long spicy berry finish. A treat for Shiraz-lovers- keep this one in mind for Father's Day.
The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes for this robust Australian red wine were grown on the Coonawarra Terra Rossa "Cigar Strip" in the heart of the Coonawarra wine region in South Australia. This layer of rich, red stone over limestone produces the vibrant red and dark fruit character in this wine. - 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.
