Natalie's Score: 91/100

A full-bodied Chilean red with a towering structure, great depth of black fruit and tar flavour and a good grip on the palate. Decant for 2 hours for maximum pleasure. Long finish. Could use cellar time to mellow and integrate. Finishes with notes of blackcurrant and cedar smoke. Pair with a rare steak tonight.

Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: rare steak, beef braised in red 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.

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.
