Can't recommend highly enough Carmenere. A beautiful grape that's often blended with others - Syrah, Merlot, Malbec - and is pretty good on it's own such as the Cambucha Carmenere, robust and rich with that inky deepness associated with the Carmenere grape. This is indeed Tesco's finest.
Also love the Monte Real Malbec Shiraz, from Argentina which is a super accompaniment to roasted meats and strong cheeses and my final exultation of this particular foray into reds is Cono Sur Bicicleta Pinot - Chilian and delicious, lighter and more fresh than the others but well worth a mention. With the prices so reasonable - there's no excuse for not treating yourself during the long, dull month that is January. 'Red (Wine) January' I shall call it from now on. Does it for me.
