Natalie's Score: 89/100

Although not as impressive as the 2007 vintage, the 2009 is a full-bodied, richly layered Spanish red wine made from Tempranillo grapes, also known as Tinta del Pais in Spain. Enticing aromas of smoke, dried black fruit, earth, leather, tobacco leaves and dried herbs. Pair with a rare steak. Decant 1-2 hours.

Tempranillo food pairings: game dishes, roasted and grilled meats.

92 Points, WINE ENTHUSIAST, Feb 1, 2016 by Michael Schachner
"Opening plum and raspberry aromas are complete and elegant, with dry earthy notes. This feels lush and layered with deep plum, raspberry and creamy oak flavors. Through to the finish, this is long, nicely oaked and complex in flavors and strong in structure and balance. Drink through 2021."

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.
