Reviews and Ratings

Created from 100% Tempranillo, this Rioja has been aged in French oak casks for two years and released in bottle after six years. It definitely has had time to mellow and mature and think about what it wants to be when it grows up. And it has -- with full and lush red currant, raspberry and plum, savoury spice and black pepper on the palate and soft, smooth tannins. Bison burgers, venison sausage, grilled root vegetables would all go well with this one. - 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.

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.
