Reviews and Ratings

CarrieMac @sudburyvino rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Intense garnet-purple hue with lots of dark berry fruit on the nose. This descending blend of Monastrell, Syrah and Petit Verdot is full of dark fruit, blueberry, chocolate and a little spice. There is some nice mouth watering acidity and some tannin on the flavorful finish. This wine spent 4 months in American Oak, and is a full bodied wine that will pair well with blackened grilled beef ribs. Great value wine at $13.95!
From the Jumilla wine region in Spain, El Gorú Bodegas Ego (2015) is a red wine blend of 50% Monastrell, 30% Syrah and 20% Petit Verdot. The dry and full-bodied red is intense with rip purple and black plums, chocolate and sweet spice from oak ageing. Pair with roast duck. - 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.
