Contado De Haza, Ribera Del Duero, Spain, 2006
Beautiful intense ruby red colour. fragarences of currants and red roses invite with subtle notes of spice, cocoa and nuances of toasted bread. The palate is full and fruity with black fruit flavours abound. Good smooth tannins.
Silverado Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, Califonria 2005
Robert Parker Jr. ‘ The elegant 2005 Cab. Sauv. Napa (87% Cab Sauv., and the rest Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cab. Franc) reaveals notions of lead pencil shavings intermixed with black cherries, black currants, toast and damp earth. it is a mid-weight flavourful red with good acidity as well as a moderately long finish.’
