rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Here again I have discovered a great under $20 red wine. Full of body , character and personality coming in at $17.90

A deep black currant coloured wine, on the nose ripe cherries, blueberries, Logan berries. Herbal notes of rosemary then woody tones of oak and mocha.

On the palate, fruits of black cherries, plums and dried figs rounding off with red currants. Notes of oak step forward before a perfectly balanced licorice tone. Mocha makes its introduction and is swiftly joined by a characteristic black pepper spice. Dry lengthy tannins make this a delicious wine I would be proud to introduce to any of my wine friends!

I give it a 92. I wuld serve with cheeses, duck, lamb or a wonderfully aromatic fish cataplana!

Bottoms up!

Valérie Dufour - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Nice aromas of red liquorice and spices. The mouth is full of fruit, the tannins are melted and there is a touch of bitterness in the finale. Great wine at a friendly price. Great with grilled red meat or with a mix of tapas.

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.
