Big black, tarry fruit and oak on the nose of this blockbuster red wine. A consistently great producer of robust red wines from southern France. A savoury and deep red with dark red fruit and dried herbs. Mouth-watering and juicy. This is a blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Syrah grapes that was matured in oak barrels for one year. Some smoke and dark spices on the finish. Try it with prime rib.

Cabernet Syrah food pairings: beef.

The vineyard for this wine is situated in the Costières de Nimes, between the city of Nimes and the Rhone. It's a blend of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon and about a third Syrah grapes. The vines were planted by the winemaker's father Roger Mares. - 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.
