An extraordinary wine, Fogarty’s best Bordeaux-style wine ever. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, it shows the classic profile of a young wine capable of extended aging. The tannins still are serious at the age of nearly five years. There’s good acidity, and the core of blackberries, cherries and cassis is potent. Give it at least another six years. Score: 94 Source: Steve Heimoff, Vintages Wine Catalogue.

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.
