|Heavy fuller-bodied succulent reds

|903. 2014 Malbex, Amalaya - ARGENTINA
Sweet and spicy aromas on the nose, reminiscent of black pepper. This is one of the best Malbec wines we have tasted for a long time.

Hard stone berry fruit, laden with layers of different fruit, starts hard finishes very elegantly

|907. 2013 Cabernet Sauvinon, JESTER MITOLO, AUSTRALIA
Spicy lifted and pure, 2010 vintage has a 20% Amarone component which adds juicy savoury tannins, richness and elongated length
|912. 2008 Malbec, Chateau de Chambert - SOUTHERN FRANCE
Not Argentinian or south American so don’t expect big plummy luscious fruit, More subtlety, but still delightful aromas of plum and blackberries wrapped around velvety tannins. Perfect with red meat or anything spicy, definitely more of a food wine rather than its new world counterparts!
|911. 2009 Briego Crianza Bodegas Briego - RIBERA DEL DUERO, SPAIN
Strong characteristics of the Tempranillo grape variety. Ripe red fruits aromas - blackberries, strawberries, cherries, rasberries, followed by delicate notes of tobacco and wood ageing characteristics
|908. 2011 Minervois, Les Fontanilles, DOMAINE ANNE GROS & JEAN-PAUL TOLLOT
Sensational – rammed with ripe luscious berry fruit – unbelievable challenge to the New World wambam power packed rich sweet fruit crackers – this has a delicious dry finish that will not disappoint – but this is a big dollop of a wine!
|915. 1999 Rioja Crianza, BODEGAS URBINA - RIOJA
Full and deep with balck cherry, rasberry and plum fruits - a fantastic Rioka at this price
|909. 2012 Henry Seven HENSCHKE - AUSTRALIA
When I first tried this wine I described it as volumptuous and curvaceous! My opinion has not changed byt will add - it is a really powerful luscious red driven by sweet cherry red berry fruit that explodes when it arrives in your mouth - you have been warned!
|918. 2009 Bandol, DOMAINE DE TERREBRUNE PROVENCE
A lovely mix of Mourvedre, Grenache and CInsault with great ageing potential
