Reviews and Ratings

BJ Oudman rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A balanced expression with a great QPR for Cabernet fans. The grapes are sourced from Luján de Cuyo, producing a ripe and tannic workhorse. Deep, dark fruit dances with earthy spice all the while being balanced by a subtle oak influence. Think grilled ribeye steak.
Brent Gushowaty rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

In the glass the wine has a medium depth with a purple rim. The nose holds aromas of red pepper, mint, herb and cedar. The palate follows through well on the nose with red pepper and light aromatic herbs. The flavour here is a bit held back, light and savoury somewhat like a mid-weight Bordeaux in profile
B- ~ 90

Aging for 18 months in new French oak (20%) and new American oak (10%) in combination with second use oak (70%). Bottled in November 2017. Unfined and unfiltered.

The Bramare series of wines are drawn from two growing regions in Mendoza-Luján de Cuyo and the Valle de Uco.

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.
