Natalie's Score: 93/100

A gloriously full-bodied and savoury Californian Zinfandel with layers of rich complexity and black plums. You can almost taste the Californian sunshine that warms these grapes into full, fleshy ripeness. Finishes with a whiff of campfire smoke and stories. Pair with grilled hamburgers and great friends.

Zinfandel food pairings: pizza, gourmet burgers, baby back ribs in a spicy sauce.

Reviews and Ratings

Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Full-bodied, concentrated and smooth. Ripe black plum, cassis, licorice, leather, cedar and minty flavours go on and on. Enjoy with BBQ pulled pork sliders. Tasted July 2017 by @somsosa | bespketastings.ca
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Juicy red and black berry fruit, earthy aged leather, a touch of smokiness, baking spice. Well balanced, integrated medium tannins and alcohol. Full bodied, robust and complex. A fantastic pairing with gourmet hamburgers and easily enjoyable on its own. Tasted the 2015 vintage in July 2017 after decanting 1 hour. 92 points. BespokeTastings

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.
