Reviews and Ratings

From Familia Castaño, Hécula (2013) is fantastic value under $20. Mourvèdre/Monastrell (with some Grenache and Syrah) is the red wine blend on this leathery, dark chocolate, smoky, oaky, and dark spiced wine. Drink now and for the next three years. - 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.

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.
