Saturday 22 October 2011
2008 Tesco Finest* Douro
Sweetly aromatic, this rich, ripe blend of Port's Touriga Nacional and Tinta Roriz has a chocolatey smoothness of spicy-black fruitiness offset by a damsony twist. £5 when you buy two, until 1 November, or £7.29, Tesco
2010 Val de Pedron Monastrell, Alicante
Made from the monastrell, aka mourvèdre, grape, this bright southern Spanish tinto oozes black fruit flavours etched with peppery undertones and a robust backbone of fine tannins. £7.99, bottle/case (of 6), M&S
2009 Silex Rouge Côtes du Rhône Villages, Massif d'Uchaux Brugalière/Viguier
Behind the smoky scents of this impressive Southern Rhône blend lies tarry spice and peppery fruit that's delicately textured. £12.45, Berry Bros & Rudd (0800 2802440)
