Natalie's Score: 90/100

Produced by Charles Wagner Sr., Caymus is renowned for its Cabernet Sauvignons, but California's heritage Zinfandel grapes has a special place in his heart, and it shows on this big, bold Californian Zinfandel from the Napa Valley. Aromas of ripe purple plum and spice open up to ripe, jammy fruit, savoury herbs, cedar brush and spicy flavours on the palate. Enjoy with slow cooker ribs.

Zinfandel food pairings: venison stew, venison sausage and wild mushroom sauce, spicy spatchcock partridge.

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.
