"Little wines like this are undoubtedly useful, especially when you can buy two at £5.99 each until end May 2011. A blend of Grenache, Syrah and Carignan, it is brightly focused, peppery and herby on the nose with a cool raspberry fruitiness. Crisp, moreish, food-friendly on the palate, the grippy acidity and tannins focusing the modest fruit. Bowl of chilli? Plate of spag bol?
Goes with: Pasta & Risotto, Red meat & Dark game."
