Natalie's Score: 86/100

Tasty depths of black-purple plums, blackberries and black raspberries. Toasty hickory smoke wafts through the basket of fruit. Full-bodied, supple and warm. Invites to sidle up next to the bottle like an old friend at the bar.

Malbec food pairings: grilled meats, roasted vegetables.

Smooth, delicious, and reasonably priced - what more could you ask for? Pair this wine with a hearty manchego and a score of good friends, and you've got the makings for a fabulous wine-drinking night.

Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

The beginning is marked by the dark plums and spices making this wine very generous in taste. The final structure is wide and round thanks to the presence of the barrels that has been excellently integrated. The after taste is long and elegant. Harmonizes perfectly with all types of barbecues, ripe cheeses and sweet-and-sour sauces. Stews and herbs are another partner for this wine.

L’ouverture est marquée par des prunes foncées et des épices qui donnent une saveur généreuse r ce vin. La structure finale est large et ronde grâce r la présence des barils qui sont intégrés de façon excellente. L’arricre-gout est lon

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.
