Tasting notes


From a winery named after the Royal Warwickshire Regiment (a previous owner served in the Boer War), this is a Cabernet Sauvignon bolstered by a dash of Merlot that shows understated green pepper, blackcurrant and spice. It's full bodied and smooth, with round tannins and immediate appeal. Drink 2009-11. (£8.99)
