Natalie's Score: 88/100

Vintages Wine Panel: A truly wonderful, perfectly ripe 2007 Cab/Merlot from a new producer. Cassis, chocolate cherry, smoked meat and cinnamon toast. Dry and fruity, with fine tannins and fresh acidity on the mid-palate bringing balance. The tannins are starting to integrate nicely, and the wine is drinking ideally now, but will also reward another 2-3 years in a cellar. Medium-full bodied with a fairly long, smoky-edged/fruity finish. My note: A savoury, juicy red with meaty notes and blackcurrant. Full-bodied with solid structure and length. This is a winery to watch.

Cabernet Merlot food pairings: lamb burgers, gourmet sausages.

Andre reviewed this wine as follows:

This is a very fruity Cab Merlot that is extremely smooth. Flavours of juicy red fruit dominate this wine with flavours of Plum, Currant and even leaning to raspberry.

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.
