More Wine Reviews and Ratings

Reverse Wine Snob reviewed this wine as follows:

This wine begins with a really nice aroma of ripe fruit and it gets even better from there. The 2010 Santa Julia Organica Malbec exhibits notes of plum and cherries and is a very smooth, very drinkable, very nice Malbec. There's even a little bit of spice on the finish, although it does end a bit abruptly. It even got a little better on day 2. Overall I'm quite impressed with the Santa Julia Malbec and I recommend you pick one up.

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.
