Natalie's Score: 89/100

Rich cherry liqueur with full-bodied flavour and juicy goodness in this robust Pinot. There's some spices on the finish with a profusion of berry flavour that rolls on long after your glass is empty.

Gerry rated this wine as 90/100
Natalie rated this wine as 90/100
The Santa Barbara Wine Company 2008 Pinot Noir opens with aromas of bright, fresh berries and sweet spice, which lead to an explosion of ripe cherry, raspberry and strawberry on the palate. This food-friendly wine has mouth-watering texture, fine tannins, and is well balanced with a lively finish.

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.
