Natalie's Score: 92/100

Blockbuster Californian Zinfandel, bursting with fleshy black fruit and smoke. This classic Californian red wine made from the flagship Zinfandel grape. Vibrant, round and full-bodied. Lots of life in the glass. Finishes with dark spices. Perfect for BBQ meats or a juicy steak.

Zinfandel food pairings: dry-rubbed ribs, grilled burgers.

Reviews and Ratings

Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A full-bodied black cherry coloured Zinfandel with aromas of juicy black plums, wet cedar, cigar box and dried eucalyptus leaves. On the palate, there are ripe blueberries, some notes of sous-bois and a slightly bitter cocoa finish. The tannins are structured and well integrated and the flavours linger on the palate. This wine definitely needs food.

Suggested wine-food pairing: Roasted Duck, roasted Lamb, or barbecued pork ribs.

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.
