Heather Wall rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Great quality/price ratio. A delicious blend of Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon hand picked and aged in French oak. This wine had me at the initial nose of Bumbleberry pie. Follow that up with cherry liqueur, sweet spices, black plum and pepper and it's a done deal. This is a full-bodied red wine with some mild tannins and good balancing acidity. A real price performer at $16. Buy a case for those long cold winter evenings by the fire...you know they're coming. Great beef wine.
Tasted: Sept 2015




Natalie's Review

Finca Flichman Expresiones Reserve Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon 2012, Mendoza, Argentina: This winery sources all of its grapes from estate vineyards and the harvesting is done by hand. This Shiraz (60%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (40%) blend spends 8 months in American and French oak, which imparts depth and richness to the wine, along with toasty oak and vanilla smoke aromas. Lots of dark fruit to fill out all the spaces in this wine. Rich and fleshy black and purple plum flavours on this finish. A crowd pleaser. Pair with hamburgers dressed with all the fixins.

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.
