Cherie Cole rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A blend of Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon, this red from Navarra, Spain grips your palate and begs for a red meat accompaniment. You'll find lots of fruit come through on the aromas and flavours with dark cherry and berry jam dominating, followed by notes of leather and tobacco. A great choice to add to your cellar and enjoy in 2-3 more years.
Monique Sosa rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A floral fruit forward aromatic Spanish red (Tempranillo-Cabernet blend) with juicy red plum, cherry, stewed strawberry and anise flavours. Tannins are chewy and balanced by a long juicy acidity. Enjoy with braised beef short ribs. Tasted by @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A blend of Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine is full bodied with lovely flavors of strawberry, cherry, vanilla, baking spice, smoke, and leather. Silky and rich with lovely tannins and noted oak on the spicy dark fruit finish.

Natalie's Review

Palacio de Sada Crianza 2013, Navarra D.O., Spain: A very tannic wine with a firm grip on the palate. This should smooth out with cellar time and 1-2 hours decanting. A juicy, black-fruited Spanish red wine from the region of Navarra. Purple and black plum aromas on the nose with a savoury note on the finish. This will do well in the cellar for a few years. Pair with grilled pork chops. Drink: 2017-2022. 246736 14% XD 750 mL  $16.95 Score: 89/100. September 16, 2017 Best Value Red Wine. Plush Pork Wine  Full Review

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.
