Natalie's Score: 96/100

Delivers enticing aromas of black raspberry, cherry and blackcurrant with a wisp of dried tobacco leaves and herbs underneath. Full-bodied with polished tannins and an exceptional structure and balance. The flagship winery of Spain, Vega Sicilia, also owns this winery that has 96 hectares in the Toro region. It’s made exclusively from Tinta de Toro grapes (aka Tempranillo) and matured for 12 months in French and American oak.

Tempranillo food pairings: beef tenderloin with a mushroom sauce, lamb chops, mature cheeses, Mexican dishes, turkey.

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.

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.
