Reviews and Ratings

An exciting blend of Touriga Nacional, Aragonez and Trincadeira that offers up dark plum, blueberry, leather, stewed cherry, topsoil and mineral aromas. Warm and generous in the mouth with a dark fruit core and a crisp balancing acidity, and firm grippy tannins. This will drink well over the next 3-5 years. Enjoy tonight.

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.
