Natalie's Score: 87/100

This is a multiple award-winning wine brimming with spicy fruit character. Aromas of mocha, black cherry, plum, tobacco leaf, and wild blueberry abound. Dry and medium bodied, ripe tannins and a plush texture, with ample bright acidity bringing balance. Although still relatively young, it’s drinking nicely now and should continue to evolve in the short term. Cellar 1-2 years, or enjoy it tonight. Dry grained flavour and texture with dark fruit and smoke. Round and pleasing.

Carmenère food pairings: marinated steaks. grilled lamb.

A deep ruby in the glass with aromas of red berries and spices prominent. There is good weight and depth to the palate, with lots of acidity supporting the vibrant red berry. More spice present on the medium-long finish. Drinking very well now. It will also reward cellaring for 1-2 years. Source: Vintages Wine Panel

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.
