Natalie's Score: 91/100

This is incredibly delicious! Full-bodied, juicy, smooth, with black and purple plum liqueur and fleshy blueberries. Produced by winemaker Frederico Falc√£o, this full-bodied Portuguese red wine is made from grapes grown on the winery's estate farm in the Palmela region from the local variety Castelao. The vines grow in sandy soils and are harvested via traditional methods with a foot treading for pressing and open lager fermentation and oak maturation. The grapes grow on old vines which lends concentration and aging potential to the wine. You can't beat the price here. Great party wine when the party involves hearty meat dishes. Stock up!

Food pairings: meat lovers pizza.

Here comes another heavy glass bottle from Chile ... weight does not equal quality or seriousness in a wine, but this is a good one. The grapes are sourced from old vines and so have great concentration and tannins. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
