Natalie's Score: 90/100

A robust, dark fruited Spanish red wine with toasty oak and a firm tannic grip. This full-bodied red wine is a blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Carinena grapes, from vines planted in 1945 and 1928, respectively. The wine was matured for 8 months in 2-year-old French oak barrels. Decant 2 hours and enjoy with hearty meat dishes.

Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Deep ruby red colour, the nose displays lush dark fruit, plum, fig, and smoke. Well worth the money, and this wine will only continue to get more interesting over the next 5-10 years. Tasted January 2015. 91 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca

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
