Sweet red and dark fruits, very juicy and commercial nose. Sweet black fruits on the palate, nicely balanced, easy drinking than expected. Good length.
 
Rioja Reserva 2008 Vina Pomal Spain. £9.99
This a multi gold medal winning wine and comes with a great fanfare!
Really good colour, classy nose, sweet red and black fruits, with the sweet oak sitting quitely in the background. Generous on the palate, bold but balanced. Mix of damson and sweet dark fruits, wrapped in a nice coconut fruit coating. Great balance. A big mouthful of wine and worthy of the high praise and medals that has been heaped on it!

Sweet juicy dark berry fruits, hints of mocha and slightly smokey. Big sweet mouthful of dark fruits, intense flavours, a little clumsy for me, But big Zin drinkers will love it at the price!!
