Natalie's Score: 88/100

Deliciously spicy and smoky on the nose and palate. This full-bodied, southern French red wine from the Rhone Valley over-delivers on value and taste. The oddly shaped bottle evokes the twisted vines from the strong Mistral wind that blows through the vineyards keeping the grapes dry until harvest.This is a blend of Grenache and Syrah grapes aged in French oak tanks for 6 months. Decant 1 hour and pair with a juicy steak.

Food pairings: lamb, beef, BBQ, or sausages.

Dry and fruity Grenache-Syrah blend. Notes of blackberry, raspberry and soft spice. Medium-Full bodied with smooth finish. Drawn in by the fun shaped bottle- but pleased with the overall experience. Good value wine.

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.
