Natalie's Score: 90/100

This Californian Zinfandel weighs in at 15.4% alcohol, but it's surprising that it actually doesn't taste that hot and heavy. Smooth and full-bodied with aromas of purple and black plums, blueberry and toast. Pair with grilled meats and barbecue.

Zinfandel food pairings: herb crusted chicken, roasted lamb, roast breast of veal.

Reviews and Ratings

Lake Sonoma (2013) is a smooth Zinfandel with a blueberry, raspberry and red plum nose and palate. This Zinfandel from Dry Creek Valley in Sonoma County was aged 22 months in oak (65% French, 20% American, 15% European, 15% new). Pair with a veal Porterhouse steak on the grill. - 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.
