Natalie's Score: 92/100

Huge and towering, this blockbuster Australian red wine weighs in at 16.1% alcohol but the fruit and structure can handle it. Can you? Angels' Share refers to the naturally evaporating amount of wine, say 2%, that goes into the atmosphere from the oak barrels as it ages -- presumably for the drinking pleasure of angels. Medieval winemakers assumed that angels watched over the wines and took their share.

Reviews and Ratings

Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Floral, plum and blackberry aromas give way to a mouthful of plum, black fruit and mocha, all bound together with chewy tannins. A soft finish offers a hint of spice
Whale-sized tannins make this a huge wine in the mouth that deserve 2 hours decanting (and some cellar time before that). - Community Wine

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.
