Minty black plums on the nose that opens to a fleshy seductive richness on the tongue. Full-bodied and supple. I like that the fruit doesn't taste sweet but more savoury. Great food wine, and all-round lovely wine for the money.

Carmenère food pairings: T-bone steaks, bison burgers.

Tasty wine that shows Chile’s knack for excellent Carmenère. Deep ruby in the glass, it comes out guns blazing with mulberry, wild blueberry, black plum, tobacco and woodsmoke. Full body, good ripeness and concentration, with a dark fruit core accented by just-right smoky accents. Enjoy tonight. Source: Vintages Wine Panel, Dec. 2012

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.
