Natalie's Score: 95/100

An amazing wine; a classic for those looking for Chile's flagship labels. There’s a splash of Petit Verdot grapes in this mostly Carmenère-driven red. Deep, long and complex with layers of mouth-watering juiciness. Deep purple says it all, including both the colour and the aromas of fleshy dark plums and berries. There's cedar smoke and spices on the finish. Truly a wine for hedonists. This is one for the cellar as well, but why wait? I'd drink it with hearty meat dishes.

Carmenere food pairings: grilled steaks, osso buco.

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.
