Natalie's Score: 90/100

Lovely! I like how Tempranillo fleshes out the malbec here. It makes for a lip-smacking delicious combination of dark fleshy fruit. Terrific price.

Malbec Tempranillo food pairings: vegetarian pasta with a basil sauce, grilled peppercorn steak, lamb, pork.

Perfect Pasta and Tomato Sauce Wine

The 2012 that i tried to drink the other day was the worst commercial bottle of wine that I have ever tasted.
Superb complexity on the nose with concentrated aromas of sweet vanilla, mocha and blackberry leading the charge. The palate is dry and fruity with lovely focus and intensity to the flavours. Simply loaded with fruit, the balance and structure make it a very friendly and approachable wine. Source: Vintages Wine Panel

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.
