Natalie's Score: 92/100

This juicy Argentine red wine is a robust red blend of Malbec and Touriga Nacional. Look for bright, ripe cherries, fresh mushroom, earthy florals and smoky aromas on the nose. Dry, medium-bodied with black cherries, mulberry, blueberry, fresh mushroom, savoury herbs and anise flavours on the palate. Great acidity for food. Tannins are fine and firm. Buy it by the case.

Malbec Touriga Nacional food pairings: grilled sirloin steak, mushroom stuffed flank steak, beef stews.

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.
