Sendiana Lebanon Grand Vin 2014
A vibrant red wine with aromas of dark cherry, rich red forest fruits and floral notes of lavender and violet. The palate has hints of white truffle, hazelnut, and warm spices with glimpses of anise and clove, rounded off with herbaceous undertones. The finish is gripping, velvety and lingering.

Groote Post Merlot
Elegant plum and raspberry nose, followed by a juicy mulberry palate. Just a hint of South Africanness that can make one nostalgic for the Cape winelands if you happen to be in that frame of mind...

Chateau Tournefeuille Lalande de Pomerol 2015
Dark in colour, with a powerful nose of ripe black fruits and violet notes. An elegant and complex palate. A dense bouquet with a beautiful tannic base, fruity and fresh on the finish, well balanced. Country: France Region: Bordeaux ABV: 14.5% Grapes: 70% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc Wine has been in the blood of the Petit family since the eighteenth century but they did not buy this particular Château until 1998. Situated in the commune of Néac, what makes this property so special is the south-west facing, clay/gravel slope on which it sits, just across the Barbanne valley from its near neighbour Pétrus. These conditions are perfect for the ripening of Merlot and Cabernet Franc

Chateau Relais de la Poste Cote de Bourg
A great example from the lesser known Cotes de Bourg Bordeaux Region.Rich, purple colour with a brooding, peppery nose. Lush cassis fruit on the palate, with spicy, aromatic and floral edges. Chocolate oak nicely melts into the background.Country: FranceRegion: Cotes de BourgABV:13.5%Grapes: Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, MerlotCotes de Bourg is an appellation of the Bordeaux region, producing primarily red wine, but also a small quantity of white. The Merlot grape dominates the vineyards here – it thrives in the areas with cooler, moist, clay­rich soils, while Malbec does better in the gravel and sand­dominant parts of the Cotes de Bourg. The wines are of a younger drinking style, but will also age reasonably well for five to ten years.

Rocca di Frassinello 2015
This one is a keeper, but if you choose to drink it in 2019/20 it has aromas and flavours of berries, plums, liquorice and warm spice. A velvety mouthfeel and generous finish.
