Natalie's Score: 89/100

Plummy and rich with layers of dark berry flavour. Velvet smooth with a satisfying grip on the finish. This full-bodied wine would be ideal for movie night (especially film noir) or a casual potluck dinner.

Syrah food pairings: rich game dishes, roast beef, hard cheese, pizza, grilled or spice-rubbed chicken.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

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.
