Thursday 18 October 2012 14:07 BST

Night in

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

Dinner party

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

Splash out

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)
