Natalie's Score: 87/100

Vintages Wine Panel: A Gold Medal winner at the 4th annual Concurso Internacional de Vinhos do Brasil in 2008. Tinta Roriz (a.k.a. Tempranillo – a grape with many different regional names in Portugal) is the core of this tasty blend. The addition of Port grapes Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca impart a juicy-fruity vibrancy to this cedary, savory, well-balanced wine. Dark berry fruit sails across the palate on waves of lively acidity and lithe tannins. Decant a bottle and enjoy it tonight, or cellar it 3+ years. My note: A savory, mouth-watering red with notes of vanilla-spice, black raspberry, kirsch and smoke.

Tinto Roriz food pairings: rare roast beef.

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.
