Reviews and Ratings

Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This is an interesting blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Petite Verdot and 15% Tempranilla. Opaque, dark plum in the glass. There were fleeting spice notes on the nose- cardamom, eucalyptus and mint. It is smooth on the palate with fine tannins. Not fruit driven, it is reminiscent of a Bordeaux but with a bit of vibrant acidity. Would pair well with aged cheeses and stews! Tasted Nov 2017
From the Maule Valley In Chile, Nativa Community Blend (2012) is an organic red wine with wine grapes from the largely organic wine region of Cauquenes. The red wine blend includes seven varietals, no less, of Cabernet Sauvignon, Carmenere, Grenache, Carignane, Mourvedre, Tempranillo, and Petit Verdot.- Community Wine Reviews

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.
