Wine: Something for the weekend
Saturday 20 October 2012
2011 Cosmina Pinot Noir Banat, Romania
Gone is the old Romanian pinot noir and in its place a soft-centred mulberry and cherry-filled modern red flecked with oak spice; eminently quaffable. £6.99, Waitrose
2007 Noster Nobilis La Perla Del Priorat
Thanks to a blend of grenache, carignan and cabernet sauvignon, this red tastes rich and powerful, its fruit framed by a firm grip and a plum freshness. £9.98, Asda
2009 Fromm La Strada Syrah, Marlborough
Seductive Kiwi syrah with juniper spice underpinned by peppery fruit in the style of Côte Rôtie. Around £20, Windermere Wine Shop (015394 46891) Caviste (01256 771080)
