Vintages Wine Panel: Jane Hunter, owner and viticulturalist of Hunter’s Wines, is in esteemed company. Her wines have gone on to win over 100 international prizes, and her Pinot Noirs are treasured by those who know and love this challenging grape. Enjoy this one now, or cellar for 2-4 years. My note: Chocolate and dark spice on the nose then it lifts on the palate to fleshy cherries and other berries. Silky texture with a medium- to full-bodied weight. Lovely!

Pinot Noir food pairings: veal tenderloin, grilled lamb.

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.
