Natalie's Score: 90/100

Smooth and juicy with campfre aromas on the nose. Very black in colour with high-toned acidity. A full-bodied southern French red wine from the region of Cahors and made from the Malbec grape, with mocha-dark chocolate aromas from oak aging, and fleshy black fruit. Great for pizza. Finishes with dark spices. Pair with meat lovers' pizza tonight. This robust Cahors red wine almost has some leanings toward Californian Zinfandel, but still is dark and smoky in a Cahors sort of way. Densely tannic and brooding: decant for 2 hours. Concentrated, powerful and highly extracted in flavour and colour.

Malbec food pairings: pizza (cheese), veal, beef, chicken herb-rubbed roast, hearty soups.

Beyond a shadow of a doubt, this is a full-bodied Malbec from France's Southwest region of Cahors. In fact, there is no shadow at all in this deep red, almost black wine with robust dark fruit and dark chocolate flavours The wine is still quite tannic and could cellar for a few years. So, this one definitely needs to be decanted for a couple of hours prior to serving. Pair with meat lovers' pizza. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
