Natalie's Score: 92/100

A rich and seductive vintage port from 2014 that's a blend of 60% Touriga Franca with 20% Touriga Nacional grapes with the remainder small amounts of other local grapes. This port has 97 grams per litre of residual sugar. The 2014 vintage was challenging for port producers, yet this is a terrific after-dinner drink. Aromas of blackberry liquer and fruitcake. This estate was founded in 1877. Pair with toasted nuts and hard cheeses.

Vintage Port food pairings: dark chocolate, blue cheeses, roasted nuts.

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.
