Wine of the Month – January 2012: Perez Cruz Winemaker’s Selection 2009 (Virgin Wines £19.99)

January 13, 2012 8:40 pm / by

This is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Cot (Malbec) from the Maipo Alto region of Chile.  It is currently on special offer at £9.99 from Virgin Wines for a limited time.  The wine is intensely dark purple in colour and its vibrant, youthful, blackcurrant fruit hits you immediately on the nose.  It is reminiscent of blackcurrant pastilles.  On the palate the tannins are not overpowering and the black fruit shines through with a hint of oak and some smoky notes.  This is a serious wine and needs to be drunk with food.  The Wine Gang describe this as “a very classy wine with wide appeal” (  I am very happy to recommend it as my first ‘wine of the month’ for 2012, especially at the current price of £9.99.
