Break out the patio furniture; this fruity Merlot with its mix of big fruit and spice notes and soft, round finish is ideal for sipping on its own or as pairing to hamburgers at your next outdoor occasion.

  Best Books of the Year

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.
