Courtney Flood rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Dark cherry cola, mulberry, toffee, anise, black peppercorn and touch of basil. Dry, charcoal finish.
Alex & Priya rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Alex: A thick concentrated affair, it's full and intense, with a fair dollop of tannin and balanced acidity. Big cassis fruit with fresh mint and a yeasty note on the nose, bordering on syrupy on the weighty palate. It's not bad though, and delicious for a single glass. I'd want more elegance to drink a whole bottle. 87pts
Lynn van der Linde rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Bigger is better! Big steak, bid red... Blueberries, leather, licorice that carry throw that with a lingering peppery finish.
Tasted April 2016.
Cherie Cole rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Red fruit, savory herbs and animal notes on the nose. Medium-bodied with a ripe cherry finish. Tasted April 3, 2016.
Jacky Blisson rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Dark garnet. Heady aromas of stewed black fruits, faint herbal notes and sweet spice. Jammy, lifted fruit flavours is nicely offset by fresh acidity. Full bodied, with big, ripe tannins. Tobacco and a subtly savoury character feature on the finish.
Bill Wright Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Leather oak tobacco. Some earthiness. Loaded with dark fruits and spice. Long tart and spicy finish.
Tasted April 3/16
Lori Kilmartin WSET3 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Cigar, leather, oak and cassis on the nose. Full bodied with some grippy tannins and balanced acidity. A long fruit finish of dark fruits; blackberry and cooked prunes. Another great red meat wine! Tasted April 3/2016
Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Rich red and black berry aromas with lots of cigar box and sweet spice. Rounded tannins give it a velvety mouth feel and the berry aromas carry to the taste. The finish is long and mainly tart cherry.

Natalie's Review

San Pedro Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2013, Maipo Valley, Chile: Savoury, feral, rich, dark and brooding South African red wine made from classic Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. The grapes were harvested by hand in mid April and underwent a cold maceration of 5 days followed by a longer one of 25 days. The wine was aged in French oak barrels (95%) and America oak (5%). Intense concentration and depth of flavour: lots of fleshy black plums and berries. Pair with leg of lamb and rosemary. Drink: 2014-2018. 37911 14.50% D 750 mL  $19.95 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.
