Wine: Something for the weekend
Saturday 12 May 2012
2011 Marks & Spencer CM Carmenère, Elquí Valley
There's a herbal undertone to this sweetly liquorice-spicy red from Alvaro Espinoza with a touch of oak and chocolate underpinning fruit moderated by a Pacific-breezy freshness. £7.49, Marks & Spencer
2009 Heartland Dolcetto/Lagrein, Langhorne Creek
North Italian grapes bring freshness to this powerful Aussie blend whose cherry-fruit mingles with hints of mint and pepper – just the ticket for National BBQ Week starting 28 May. £13, Oddbins
2008 Nebbiolo d'Alba Il Cumot Bricco Maiolica
Unlike barolo, nebbiolo (from which it's made) can be drunk young and this perfumed example from Beppe Accomo with its bright cherryish fruit is as irresistible as it comes. £20.75, Lea & Sandeman shops (020-7244 0522)
