Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Grenache dominant with a 30% Syrah component. Thrilling nose with a broad bouquet. Look for red cherry, black cherry, plum, black pepper, mint, baking spice, and violet. Ripe and jammy fruits on the palate. Very accessible, easy drinking, and crowd pleasing. 15% ABV, but it drinks lighter than that. Very good value. Fire up the barbecue and start grilling chicken breasts, burgers, and vegetables to serve this red with.
Linda Mertes WSET 2 rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A full-bodied Rhone blend of 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah, spicy, herbal aromas lead to a dark fruit and spicy palate. Medium acidity and medium tannins, with a dry, fruity finish. Decant for a couple of hours and serve with savoury dishes like pepperoni or Italian sausage pizza, or beef.

Natalie's Review

Domaine Autrand Côtes du Rhône-Villages 2017, Côtes du Rhône, Rhône A.C., France: A full-bodied 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah red wine blend sourced from old vines 40-plus years of age. Lush with earthy florals on the nose, crushed raspberry, blackberry, sweet ripe cherry, cedar spice, garrigue herb flavours on the palate and a lingering finish of white pepper spice. Great value under $20. Pair with a slow-braised beef brisket. Drink: 2020-2025. 200030 14.20% XD 750 mL  $15.95 Score: 88/100. April 1, 2020 Best Value Red Wine. Luscious Lamb 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.
