Natalie's Score: 87/100

Black fruit, smoke, oak and tar on the nose with terrific full-bodied weight and layers of black fruit flavour on the palate. Terrific price. Perfect for pizza night.

Malbec Corvina food pairings: hamburgers, prime rib.

Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

The 2011 Passo Doble Malbec Corvina has a full bouquet of pine, yeast and pomegranate on the nose and earth and pomegranate on the palate. Slight sulphur notes were also noted. It is a medium bodied, extra-dry, fruity wine with forward acidity, subtle to refined tannins (decant for 30 min) and a finish of medium length. It is a food friendly wine; drink now and for the next 1-2 years. My impression for this Corvina dominated wine: NOTHING SPECIAL, 86-87 pts. Tasted June/13.

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.
