rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

I had a slightly high excitement level for this wine, I was hoping to be transported back to my magical visit I had to the Mediteraenian. Let's just say it was speaking to me and yet the price was almost too good to be true!
The colour was classic, a substantial ruby red, it didn't cling to the glass and I was a little anxious of its body.
On the nose, there were black fruits, elderberries and a slight buttery undertone.
On the palate there was fresh acidity, blackberries, black currants when first poured, as it started to breath the presence of figs became deliciously prominent followed by a note of truffle! The tannins have a delicious length. This wine would be great with Tapas or pizza.
This is a fantastic wine for the price, if you want to steer away from the more heavy, meaty wines, if your in the mood for something a little more refreshing yet you want a wine with and intriguing personality....then give Prado a try!

Bottoms up!

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.
