Natalie's Score: 88/100

Vintages Wine Panel: This is a sophisticated wine with depth and complexity on the nose and palate. Cassis, raspberry, vanilla and green pepper work to perfection with balanced acids and tannins. This wine delivers on all counts. My note: A fantastic wine for the money with dark plum and spices. Classic cassis and blackberry notes. Buy a few cases and make it your house wine.

Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: gourmet burgers.

Trevor rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

good wine suitable for home consumption and informal get togethers.
Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

Michel Torino Cabernet Sauvignon is a ruby red wine with spicy red pepper and paprika aromas. The oak also adds smoky and tobacco notes. The elegant flavour is sophisticated and complex with stand out flavours like black berries, morello cherry and pepper. It is a well-balanced wine with a mouthful of ripe tannins.

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.
