BJ Oudman rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Drank this bottle of 2006 on a December night in 2014 and it still produced a full bodied experience. Cherry and spice on the nose were followed by more dark berries, licorice and just a lick of wood on the palate. Decanting softened the edges and made it a beautiful pairing with ribeye with chocolate chile sauce. Big brother Domus Aurea would be proud!

Natalie's Review

Viña Quebrada De Macul Pargua Ii Cabernet Sauvignon Carmenère Syrah Merlot Cabernet Franc Petit Verdot 2006, Maipo Valley, Chile: Vintages Wine Panel: Pargua is a word from the native Huilliche language that means ‘Full Moon’. The people behind Pargua work intimately with the land, treating it with the utmost respect; the connection to the land goes beyond just rules and certifications issued by independent panels. A blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Carmenère, 15% Syrah, 10% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot, this is a vibrant, fruity, delicious wine. This organic wine contains just 31 mg/L of free sulfur. My note: This wine needs no coaxing: its aromas leap out of the glass, with rich notes of blackberry, cassis, mulberry, licorice and a lick of hickory smoke. Full-bodied with a mocha-infused finish. 83279 14.80% D 750 mL  $19.95 Score: 90/100. April 11, 2009  Full Review

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.
