Reviews and Ratings

Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

A unique blend of Aragonez, Touriga Nacional, Alicante Bouschet, and Syrah, from the south of Portugal. The nose and palate display layers of sweet and rich dried fruits balanced with charcoal and leather notes. Chewy and delicious, this is a stellar wine that is sure to put a smile on your face! Very food friendly, yet this would be a great wine to enjoy on its own too. Recommend buying by the case. Incredible value. Drink 2015-2025. Tasted August 2015. 91+ points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
A robust Spanish red wine blend of made from a blend of Aragonez, Touriga Nacional, Alicante, Bouschet and Syrah grapes that are estate grown. The winery is located half way between Cuba and Vidigueira in the south of Portugal. They have 70 hectares of vines. - 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.
