Reviews and Ratings

A delightful, robust Argentine red wine with a supple, smooth texture and made form the country's iconic Malbec grape. Polished tannins, with balanced acidity. Aromas of fleshy black plums and spice. This wine was aged in French oak barrels for 18 months. Pair with grilled meats. MINE: Gran Mascota 2014 is a deep and dark medium-plus bodied Malbec with lots of Mulberry, blueberry, black plum and savoury spice flavours on the palate. Acidity is nicely balanced and tannins are soft and supple. Drink now and for the next three years. OTHER: Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review: This wine is explosive, featuring loads of black plum, blackberry, warm spice, sweet earth, melted licorice, and a hint of camphor. There is dried herb and fresh pressed purple flowers on the finish. Superbly delineated. Stunning. 92 points. OTHER: A big bold Mendoza Malbec with an impressive interplay of blue fruits and powerful tannins. Only just beginning to open up, but clearly has many years of life ahead of it. Score - 92 (James Suckling, jamessuckling.com, April 5, 2018). - 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.
