Natalie's Score: 91/100

Here's a classic Californian Zinfandel: big, juicy and full of good-natured black and purple plums with a splash of blueberries. It rolls around in your mouth, and welcomes a host of dishes to roll with it, from hamburgers to pizza. Mouth-watering flavours of fleshy brambleberry that carry through on the finish. Supple with black pepper notes. This wine is brought to us by the Mendocino Wine Company. Perfect for barbecue and grilled meats.

Zinfandel food pairings: gourmet sausages, grilled Portobello mushrooms, meat sauce pasta, aged cheddar.

Mendocino County is where the back country roads zig and zag through the vineyards and coastal mountains, not to mention, so too do those traipsing from winery tasting room to winery tasting room. Ripe berry flavours here that will do justice to grilled steak. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
