A gorgeous wine that’s got it all: tasty, satisfying fruit, terrific structure, balance and length on the finish. Made 100% from the Mencia grape grown on vines that are 40 to 90 years old. Lovely aromas of blackberries, violets, bacon fat, hickory smoke. Silky, seductive, wonderful.

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.
