Natalie's Score: 92/100

Love this style! Fleshy ripe raspberries yet not jammy. Dark spices and intrigue and a wonderfully seductive velvet texture. Full-bodied but not heavy.

Pinot Noir food pairings: veal medallions, lamb in a red wine sauce.

The Dundee Hills region of Willamette Valley is known for its red, iron-rich soil. This makes the vines happy as iron is an important requisite for photosynthesis. Earth, cherry, strawberry-rhubarb, woodsmoke and a sprinkle of brown sugar make up the aromas here. Dry, with ripe succulent fruit, bright acidity and gentle tannins. Finishes with a smoky flourish.

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.
