Some kind of juicy wonderful! Full-bodied and almost cabernet-like in its complexity and depth. However, this wine also delivers pure zinfandel pleasure: smooth and tasty.

Zinfandel food pairings: beef ribs.

The nose is very generous, with considerable black and red fruit, sandalwood, spicy pepper, smoke and cocoa. The palate is dry and quite full bodied, with skillfully incorporated and balanced tannins and acidity. Lush and interesting, with very nicely layered and complex flavour replays, plus additional touches of mulberry, oak and leather giving even greater depth and enjoyment. This closes out with a full, fruity and spiced finish. 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.
