Natalie's Score: 91/100

Beautifully balanced with classic aromas of blackberry, truffle, espresso and blackcurrant. Full-bodied with a polished, velvet texture. A long finish infused with black plums and deep satisfaction.

Vivid aromas of red currant, black plum, cassis, mocha and leather introduce this wine. The palate emphasizes balance, with round supple tannins wrapped around layers of blackberry, espresso and black truffle. A lengthy finish of spiced plum, dark chocolate and roasted coffee completes this classic Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.

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.
