Natalie's Score: 90/100

Vintages Wine Panel: An inky purple colour, this Pinot Noir opens with notes of cherry, black plum and earth, plus a nice sprinkling of bright violet that gives the nose a delightful lift. The palate is dry, medium bodied, with lots of black fruit and lingering earthy-beetroot. The tannins are certainly not shy, but they are well incorporated and do not upset the overall balance. Thoroughly delicious right through to the end of the medium-long finish. My note: A lovely supple pinot with classic aromas of cherry, earth and light spices. Medium-bodied and perfectly balanced.

Pinot Noir food pairings: roast duck.

Red, White & Drunk all over by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean writes about wine with a sensuous obsession... and often laugh-out-loud funny... Terrific.

Ms. MacLean is the disarming Everywoman. She loves wine, loves drinking ... ultimately, it's a winning formula.

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.
