Tasting notes


A blend of Monastrell (aka Mourvèdre), Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon, this is a vibrant, lively red, laden with blackberries and spice. It follows a rich, powerful, modern template, yet still displays lots of freshness, plus elegant, juicy black fruit and good length. This is nicely into its stride and very enjoyable. Drink 2009. (£8.99)
