Julia Kelada rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

You will never believe this! I bought a wine for $14.55. I stared at my Sommelier in disbelief when he told me that i absolutely must try it.....he won! I bought it! 
My Portuguese husband was insistent on having bbq'd sardines for supper, even though it was the midst of winter and blowing a gale. My sommelier said this wine would not dissapoint, and as any of you who now know my tastes by now... I KNEW I was going to hate it! 
WRONG!!!!! let me give you my translation for wow... I would pay more for this wine and not be dissapointed! So this wine is a wow!

Airing on the side of caution....no punn intended....I aired the wine in a decanter for 2 hours before I was going to taste it.

The time arrived and I poured my first glass. The colour was a surprisingly deep purple.
On the nose there was intense chocolate......my attention had been caught! There was a deliciously mellow vanilla presence followed by rich black fruits, blueberries, black cherries and even a mild hint of nutmeg.
On the palate there was a smooth chocolate deliverance with low acidity and a good dry mouth. The fruits stepped forwards with plums, figs and cherries and then gently slid into a presence of vanilla. The wine slowly introduced a subtle leathery, spicey finish with wondrous long tannins!
And all this for that price.....yup, hubby ran back to the store to stock up!

Bottoms up!

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.
