Natalie's Score: 88/100

Vintages Wine Panel: A slow-roasted beef dish with garlic mashed potatoes and grilled parsnips or carrots would complement this wine. My note: Love the dark-fruit, beguiling nose… then pow! Mouth-watering acidity demands a hearty meat meal. It’s a wonderful combination… but this isn’t a wine to drink as an aperitif. Rich, fleshy black fruit and some mocha. Absolute yum!

Food pairings: roast beef.

Deep crimson red to rim. Juicy lifted red cherry and mulberry primary aromas, smokey oak, vanilla and cedar. Sumptuously packed and concentrated in the mouth, fabulous weight of fruit, very fleshy and generous, great potential, but a bit forceful and ungainly now. Score: Silver (Best in Class) Source: International Wine & Spirit Competition

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.
