Reviews and Ratings

This sure-fire hit is bursting with aromas and flavours of dark berries, chocolate-covered cherry and roasted herbs. Round and generous in the mouth, it's a tasty reminder of Merlot's fun-loving side. Fire up the autumn barbecue for this one and it'll be all hands on deck. Source: Vintages Wine Panel, Feb. 2013

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.

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.
