From the bottle
'Delicious black cherry and blackcurrant flavours with a rich, fruity finish... sunny climate produces grapes full of flavour. A perfect match to roast red meats and barbecues...'
Price £4.99 (Available from Tesco)
Now whilst this blog has only been going a short time, but I have been 'researching' by drinking wine for many years before that, and I have to say that in recent memory this wine has to be one of the best sub five pound bottles I can remember. Lovely aromas of blackberries and black cherry can be smelt with a smidgen of a spice and liquorice, and what joy, as the tastes truly lives up to the smell. This is chock a block with lush ripe dark fruits whilst the acidity is perfectly balance. Now, Tesco has been a little naughty calling it simply Zinfandel, (I'll talk about wine labelling in another post) when it is actually a mix of Barbera, Ruby Cabernet and Zinfandel but who cares when this is the result. An absolute corker.
