Natalie's Score: 92/100

Dry, robust and savoury! Lovely aromas of maturity: it’s so nice to taste that when we usually only get the strapping young wines on the shelf. Lovely blackberry but also those more mature notes of leather, spice and cigar. Try it!

Tempranillo Graciano Carignan food pairings: roast leg of lamb, roast beef.

Reviews and Ratings

Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This senior wine is light to medium bodied with strong aromas of aged leather, liquorice, light berries and a combination of cedar, green pepper and oak. Tannins are refined (best to decant for more than 1 hour) and finish is medium. I think there is perhaps up to 2 years of life left in this wine. My impression: NICE, 90 pts (due to complexity), not recommended though as I think the aged aromas are a tad overwhelming, its either that or I may have purchased a bit corked bottle and perhaps I should give this another try. Tasted June/10.
Thomas rated this wine as 86/100

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.
