Natalie's Score: 90/100

Black at heart and soul; gotta love this big Aussie Cabernet. Hails from a cool climate yet rich in flavour. A massive, towering wine with full-on flavour and character. This full-bodied Australian red wine is made from Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, which tend to offer more structure and balance than other red grapes. Finishes with smoke, dried herbs and fleshy black fruit. Decant for 1-2 hours. Pair with grilled ribs tonight.

Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: grilled New York strip loin with chimichurri sauce, roast leg of lamb and root vegetables, barbecued pork spareribs, veal chops.

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.
