Natalie's Score: 87/100

Mocha and black fruit on the nose of this full-bodied red wine by Viñedos y Bodega Arturo Garcia. It's made from Mencia grapes grown on 80+ year old vines that are farmed biodynamically.

Louise Wilson - ISG Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

An aromatic perfume of minty black cherry follows through to the palate. Medium bodied with easy tannins and a fruity, juicy appeal. Incredibly youthful for a 7 year old wine. Delicious alongside roasted ham and scalloped potatoes. Excellent value. Enjoy through 2016. Tasted April 2014.
A deeply concentrated, robust red wine made from local grapes, and in particular Mencía which is found mostly in the Bierzo region. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
