Natalie's Score: 91/100

This superb, robust, layered Californian Cabernet sources fruit from three regions: Paso Robles, Lodi and Monterey. The wine undergoes malolactic fermentation and is then matured in American oak barrels for nine months. Aromas of fleshy ripe blackberries and plums wrapped in smoke. Pair with grilled meats or a juicy steak.

Reviews and Ratings

Craig Haynes WSET3 FWS SWS IWS rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

What I like most about this Cabernet Sauvignon was its aromatic presence. It is a pretty combination that evokes ripe cherries, herbs – especially mint – and flashes of sweet woodsy spices. The Slow Press experience does not end at aromas. It expands to reveal a comforting flavour profile, reminiscent of baked cherries and oak spice. You could enjoy this Cali creation with steak frit any day of the week.

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.
