Natalie's Score: 90/100

From an iconic producer of Cabernet Sauvignon, Caymus Zinfandel is a big and bold California red from the Napa Valley. Look for ripe plum jam, savoury herbs, spicy and juicy on the palate. The Zinfandel wine grape was a favourite of Charles Wagner Sr.

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

Reviews and Ratings

From the Napa Valley wine region, Caymus 2017 Zinfandel is a dry, full-bodied with layers of ripe red berry, jammy fruit, dark plum, cedar spice and white pepper flavours on the palate. Tannins are fleshy and this charmer of a Zinfandel finishes long and lush. Enjoy now and for the next five years. Pair with BBQ pork side ribs. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
