Natalie's Score: 94/100

A full-on, full-bodied red wine with rich, deep layers of ripe black fruit and seductive smoky oak. New World vitality and style. Closed with a screwcap. The 1998 vintage of this wine won the coveted Jimmy Watson Award, the most prestigious wine award in Australia. This wine is mostly a blend of Shiraz with about a third Cabernet Sauvignon and a dash of Malbec grapes. It was matured in French and American oak for 22 months. Great structure, long finish. What more could you want?

Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon Malbec food pairings: ratatouille, beef fajitas, roast beef, roast goose, creamed onions, lamb shanks.

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.
