Reviews and Ratings

Ammonites were the predators of their time millions of years ago stalking and feeding on marine creatures such as mollusks and small fish. It was likely that they lived in shallower waters as the high pressures of being in deep water would have likely crushed their shells. This is interesting because the Ammonite pictured on the front label of this Chilean Cabernet represent the plentiful Ammonite fossils that are found in the higher Andres Mountains where the irrigation water for this winery's vineyard originates. The grapes are grown in the Pirque region of the Maipo Valley. The wine as aged for 12 months in French oak barrels. - 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.
