Reviews and Ratings

Robust and rustic with wild tart black cherry and cedar underbrush. Firm tannins so decant 1-2 hours and pair with grilled meats. MINE: This full-bodied Portuguese red wine is a blend of Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz and Touriga Franca grapes. The vines are planted on the steep slopes of the Douro Valley with excellent drainage. Robust and rustic with wild tart black cherry and cedar underbrush, tannins are firm so decant 1-2 hours This wine is aged 9 months in new French oak barrels. OTHER: Rede is at the western, cooler end of the Douro vineyards and it shows in the fresh feel to this wine. The tannins are softer as well, creating a wine that is much more about fruit than about structure. Black fruits show well freshened with acidity and balanced with the dry, final tannins. Drink from 2017. Editors' Choice. Score - 91 (Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast, April 1, 2016). - Community Wine Reviews

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.
