Natalie's Score: 89/100

A pleasant, full-bodied red with notes of blackberries and blackcurrant. Not a wimpy wine, this will please those like a good bang for their buck. This wine is a blend of 60% Garnacha, 30% Carinena, [Carignan] and 10% Syrah and was matured for 6 months in French and American oak.

Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

The 2006 vintage just flew off the shelves, glad I managed to get a couple of bottles. This 2007 vintage is medium bodied, fruity to INTEGRATED, with nice aromas of raspberry, red currant and cedar. Tannins are refined to tannic (decant for around 1 hour) and the finish is medium to long. It can easily be cellared for 5 to 10 years, but not sure it will improve with age. If I was to add up the points using my system, it would receive 88.5 pts. I do however must give it another point and the reason is that it is not often that I really notice how the tannins and acidity are in a perfect harmony. My impression: NICE, 89.5 pts - a recommended buy. Tasted in Sept/10 during Spanish wine tasting - quite popular in the line up.

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.
