Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Lots of dark fruit up front; plum, blackberry, and cassis, with some mocha and a hint of spice and cedar. The taste is full and round with the fruits in the aroma. This a very smooth wine, great with Charcuterie, steak, or old cheeses.
An intense Cabernet from the semi-desert climes of the Limarí Valley. Rich cassis, black cherry and plum aromas and flavours with nice balance and poise throughout. Drinking well now till 2015+. Source: Vintages Wine Panel, Sept. 2012

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.
