Natalie's Score: 89/100

Vintages Wine Panel: Odisseia is a member of 1% For The Planet (www.onepercentfortheplanet.org), and donate 1% of their profits to environmental causes. This exceptional value — made with the same grapes usually used for Port — is filled with cherry, blackberry and spice box aromas and flavors. Dry, rich and robust, the wine is perfectly balanced out by fine tannins. Cellar it 3-5 years or enjoy it tonight. My note: A pleasant simple wine with aromas of dark fruit and smoke. Full-bodied but supple with a good grip on the finish. Keeps you coming back for a top-up: imminently gulpable.

Touriga Nacional food pairings: roast beef, grilled leg of lamb.

Red, White & Drunk all over by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean writes about wine with a sensuous obsession... and often laugh-out-loud funny... Terrific.

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.

Gary Vaynerchuck, Wine Library TV
