Beware of jealousy from wine collectors! Forsooth, Christian Moueix’s Othello is only available in two markets in the whole world: Japan and Ontario. Christian Moueix brings Bordeaux style to Napa Valley with this elegant and well-structured meritage blend. The layered nose reveals aromas of cassis, woodsmoke, leather, black olive, anise and mineral. It’s very dry, medium full-bodied with a dense black fruit core surrounded by refined tannins and balanced by ample acidity. This is all about structure and restraint and should easily evolve over the next 5-8 years. 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.
