Reviews and Ratings

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 95/100 with the following review:

Beautiful! Tart, dry, dusty chalky mouthfeel, savoury with big ripe plum and blackberry fruit. Well-balanced, full-bodied, rich and tangy. Complexity with medium components across the board. Paired well with aged cheese and antipasti platter. Also stood up to a seared wild pacific salmon steak and lightly roasted Brussel sprouts with Parmesan and baked sweet potato. Big, bold and aging well. Perfectly ready for enjoyment when I tasted the 2013 vintage Sept 2017. 95 pts BespokeTastings
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:

Exquisite! A beautifully crafted Malbec with layers upon layers of clean raspberry, stewed plum, clove, black licorice, and tobacco notes. Catena's Adrianna Vineyard Fortuna 2013 Malbec is a superbly crafted full-bodied Argentinian gem with smooth developing tannins, juicy balance acidity, a rich mouthfeel, and a long licorice finish. A delicious pair with braised beef sirloin and a cellar-worthy candidate able to lay put for another 8-10 years. Tasted Sep 2017 by @sommsosa

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.
