OTHER: I couldn't resist sampling the 2015 Algairen, pure Cariñena, even if it was unbottled, and I don't like unbottled samples, as they often show deviations. The grapes are cultivated in an estate called Finca Mendoza at 600 meters altitude on limestone gravel soils; these are young vines. The hand-harvested grapes fermented with neutral yeasts and the wine matured in oak barrels for eight months. I was quite impressed with what I witnessed, varietal character and contained ripeness, with a touch of oak, but nothing for being a barrel sample. The palate revealed some fine tannins and that dusty earthiness the variety is capable of. Drink Date: 2017-2019. Score - 88-90 (Luis Gutiérrez, robertparker.com, June 30, 2017). - Community Wine Reviews

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.
