Natalie's Score: 92/100

A structured and balanced blend of dark fruit, smoke and a touch of spice on the finish. Elegant and full-bodied, but not heavy. Some dark spice on the finish. Highly recommended.

Grenache Shiraz Mourvèdre food pairings: roast beef, brisket.

Darlene Myers CAPS Sommelier rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Blending Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvedre is always a good idea, and this is no different. I love the structure of a GSM, and the aromatics on this wine jumped out of the glass. Nutmeg, spice and raspberry on the nose and on the palate with good tannins and a lush finish. Put this with roast beef and its a match made in heaven.
This full-bodied red wine is a blend of Shiraz, Grenache and Mataro grapes. Source: Winery

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.
