Vintages Wine Panel: Winner of Silver Medals at the Concours Mondial de Bruxelles and Concours des Grands Vins de France, both in 2009. Raspberry, strawberry, spice, cranberry and herbs de Provence on the nose are all expertly replayed on the palate. Dry and structured, this is an excellent bargain-priced wine to put in the cellar for the short term (1-3 years). It’s also a good choice for tonight. My note: Stunning wine for the money! Rich, full-bodied and packed with gorgeously ripe, jammy berries and plums. Supple and satisfying. Yum!

Food pairings: grilled gourmet sausages, steaks.

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.
