Natalie's Score: 86/100

A full-bodied red wine that is a blend of 46% shiraz, 23% grenache, 17% mourvèdre, 11% cinsault and 3% durif grapes. Rustic, meaty and a bit tannic. Decant for 1 hour to smooth out. Try it with a rare steak. Great price.

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.
