Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Another great BBQ wine for summer. Aromas of campfire smoke, oak and ripe plums no the palate that carry through with some firm tannins on the palate. Full bodied, with nice acidity to complement the smoky, berry flavours that carry through on the palate. Enjoy with grilled meats to really pick up on the smoky character of this wine.
Espino 2015 is a value-priced, medium-bodied and medium-plus acidity Carmenère from the Maipo Valley in Chile. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty 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.
