Natalie's Score: 90/100

Juicy with mouth-watering flavours of black plums, blueberries and blackberries. Yes, this is from the producer of Dracula and other movies, but it delivers much more than a box office hit. Full-bodied, plush, smooth and delicious. Some vanilla spice, anise and blackberry roll off the finish. Try it with game dishes. Full-bodied Californian Zinfandel with hickory smoke and savoury herbs, plush black plums. Black raspberry on the finish. Lot of jammy flavours and pepper.

Zinfandel food pairings: grilled meats, burgers, steak-and-black-bean fajitas.

Tarang rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Yummy!
Cherie Cole rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Medium-bodied with lots of fruit and savory flavors and aromas of blueberry pie, plum, smoke, black pepper and dried herbs. This is the perfect wine to compliment meaty dishes such as braised beef, spicy stew or roast game.
Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Notes of cherry pie, cedar, plum and some vanilla and a hint of spice on the palate. The finish is smooth with a toasty note.
The nose on this Californian red wine is like sitting beside a campfire with hickory woodsmoke. Some blackberry pie flavours on the palate. Smooth and full-bodied with polished tannins. Finishes with spicy oak notes. Pair with a pepper steak or barbecued spare ribs. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
