Natalie's Score: 89/100

Vintages Wine Panel: Pascal Marty, former director of winemaking at the illustrious Baron Philippe de Rothschild in Bordeaux, joined the long-established Pedregal family winery in 2004, and is responsible for optimizing all aspects of quality here. His G7 red wines – a celebration of 7 generations of winemaking expertise – are warm, rich, and fruit-filled blockbusters. My note: This wine could be your new best friend. Accessible aromas of rich dark plums and berries laced with savory bacon fat, underbrush and cedar notes. Full-bodied with a great spine and layers of luscious flavor. Warm finish.

Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: grilled steak, roast beef au jus, barbecue chicken sandwich, fajitas.

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.
