Reviews and Ratings

Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Bodega Garzon has been doing some great things with Tannat of late, even having their 2015 Tannat Reserve make Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines in 2017. This 80% Cab Franc/20% Tannat has dusty rose on the nose with wet stones; vibrant red currant on the palate and soft, grainy tannins. Good structure and balance. Medium bodied and very approachable. There is a lot going on in this glass! Pair with cassoulet or duck confit. Good value. Tasted February 2020. www.thewineloverskitchen.com
Garzón Estate 2017 is a full-bodied, unoaked 80% Cabernet Franc and 20% Tannat red wine blend, fresh and fruit with crushed raspberry, ripe black berry, black currant, dried wild herbs and minty flavours fresh on the palate. Tannins are structured. Beautiful now and for the next three years. Pair with bison burgers and tourtière. - 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.
