Wineboy rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

If you appreciate power over subtlety this is the wine for you. Lovely aromatics, complex aromas. Flavours are equally complex but in a full framed style.
Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:

Incredible dusty notes of blackberry, plum, hung meat, black raspberry, cigar tobacco, warm spice and spearmint. 94 points. (ottawawinejournal.com)




Natalie's Review

Diamandes De Uco Gran Reserva 2008, Mendoza, Argentina: A rich, complex Argentine red wine blend with aromas of mocha and smokey black fruit. In the heart of Clos de los Siete in the Uco Valley of Argentina's Mendoza wine region, this robust red is made from vines planted at 1,000 metres above sea level. These high altiude vines are a single block of 130 hectares in the foothills of the Andres Mountains. Drink: 2010-2019. 627778 14.50% XD 750 mL  $32.95 Score: 92/100.

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.
