Derek rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Purchased in St Sauveur PQ
Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Cedar, vanilla, mint, black pepper, with black and red cherries in the nose. The flavours add a little tart cherry and plum to the mix. The mouth-feel is quite smooth. This is a nice wine for a beef stew with heavy roasted vegetables.
Jennifer Macdonald rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Aromas of rich red berries, black and white pepper, cedar, leather and spice. Similar flavours on the palate as well. Needs a few minutes to open up but then it mellows out nicely.
Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A rich ruby red wine from Maipu District in Argentina's Mendoza region. Aromatic with plums and ripe cherries and a red fruit palate with woodsy notes and a hint of pepper. A great choice with Beef Shortribs in Herb Chimichurri.

Matt Steeves, Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Deep ruby with a purple hue. Stewed fruit, dark berries, black pepper, spice, menthol and vanilla on the nose. Lively acid, with a dark fruit and baking spice finish. This Malbec would complement braised beef dishes. Tasted November 2014. 88 points. Matt Steeves - @QuercusVino
Sean O'Regan Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Nov 22, 2014: Deep purple, stewed fruit, plummy, chocolate, mineral and some toasty oak.
Full bodied, soft, round and generous in the mouth with stewed plummy fruit, light oak spice and some added smoky tar/mineral for added complexity. Good length. Drink over the next few years with BBQ pork back ribs.
Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Blackcherry and smoke on the nose and palate with some plum, menthol and pepper in the flavor.
Marco Giovanetti rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

Aromas of dark berries with lots of menthol notes and smoke. In the mouth, full body with sweet ripe fruit, dry black fruitwith lots of licorice character. Powerful finish.
Kimberly Inksater rated this wine as 83/100 with the following review:

This 2012 Malbec is a rich ruby colour and has delicious aromas of dark berries, baking spices, cedar, vanilla, and white pepper. The flavours are similarly rich with plums and vanilla lingering on the finish. With balanced acidity and tannins this wine would pair nicely with prime rib or other roast.

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.
