With some cellar time, this red will be spectacular! It's very tannic with a furry grip now. Classic aromas of cassis, blackcurrant and wild, tart blackberry. Great depth and length. Awesome price.

This young Right Bank Bordeaux displays brooding aromas of leather, cedar, ripe black cherry, baker’s chocolate and dark plum. It’s very dry, medium full bodied and features a core of ripe black cherry with notes of cedar, blackcurrant and tomato leaf. It’s tightly wound with plenty of tannin and acidity to age 4 to 5 more years, or decant now and serve. Source: Vintages Wine Panel

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.
