co·nun·drum
"a confusing and difficult problem or question"
The difficult question here is what red meat are you going to pair with this BIG, juicy lush wine??
Very aromatic with aromas of cooked black fruit, ripe blackberry, vanilla and cocoa. Plush mouthfeel with smooth tannins and flavours of ripe cherry and blackberry. High alcohol and a bit on the sweet side - it would be the perfect foil for Memphhis bbq'd ribs, steaks and grilled burgers

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty 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.
