Points for Value!
Friday night and what's in my glass? It's a medium+ bodied Spanish red Monasterio de las Viñas - a blend of Garnacha, Tempranillo, and Cariñena. No shortage of luscious dark fruit, as well as warm baking spices, toasted oak, cherries, vanilla and some warming alcohol. Smooth as Graceland's velvet wallpaper.
A bargain at $14.95 Vintages @lcbo! Love the frosted green bottle! A buy 2 wine.
Pairing suggestions: fire up the BBQ and char some red meat; mesquite chicken; fajitas; rack of lamb; assorted hard cheeses.

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.
