Reviews and Ratings

La Posta Estela Armando 2018 Bonarda is rich on the nose with ripe red berry, black raspberry, dark plums, anise and subtle smoky, toast oak. Dry, medium-plus-bodied, with juicy acidity for food and lush with dark plum, black cherry, chocolate, baking and toasty oak spice wrapped up in a whiff of smoke lingering on the palate. Produced by Laura Cantena. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
