Carménere food pairings: ribs in a rich sauce.

David King rated this wine as 90/100
Deep ruby colour. The nose is all bass notes: deeply fruity black raspberry and blackberry, molasses, cedar, clove and woodsmoke. Dry with lots of fruit and a cedary, smoky, spicy underlay. Medium-full-bodied wine with a luxurious texture and long, robust, vivacious finish. Cellar this fine Carmenère one year and then enjoy it for three to four more. Source: Vintages Wine Panel

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.
