Natalie's Score: 88/100

This full-bodied southern French red wine from the Rhone Valley is a blend of Grenache and Syrah grapes. Deep violet hue in the glass with seductive notes of black plum and cedar along with full-bodied goodness on the palette. One to drink and enjoy, not to analyze. Finishes with black raspberries, dried herbs and terrific minerality. Pair with cured meats.

Food pairings: slow-baked brisket, BBQ long beef ribs, venison steak.

Reviews and Ratings

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

Approachable, easy going, and complex enough to keep you intrigued. Fairly fruity up front with mellow plum and lightly cooked berries. Backed up nicely with scrubby herbs and smoked paprika. Well integrated tannins suggest that we are in the pocket of this wine's prime drinking window. Paired nicely with the grilled striploin and blue cheese cream sauce we had for dinner. Versatile enough to pair with roast chicken, semi-firm cheese, and charcuterie. Pass the dry-cured sausage please.
Made from the Syrah grape, A robust southern French red wine from the Rhone Valley with seductive notes of black plum and cedar along with full-bodied goodness on the palette. One to drink and enjoy, not to analyze, and at a fantastic price. Finishes with black raspberries, dried herbs and terrific minerality. Pair with cured meats. - 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.
