Natalie's Score: 91/100

A fine elegant wine with terrific balance, flavour and depth. There's a nervy energy to this wine: French elegance keeping the power and concentration of Argentine fruit in check. Full-bodied but not heavy. Finishes with dark spices and tobacco smoke. Lovely.

Malbec food pairings: asado (barbecued beef), lamb and rosemary.

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.
