The 2020 Rioja Tinto Sin, Bodegas Navajas is showing a beautifully perfumed, violet scented nose with hints of clove and spice and a medium bodied, juicy palate. Extremely drinkable and a great all-rounder.
Founded in 1918, Bodegas Navajas is a family-owned winery in the village of Navarrete, Rioja Alta. They own 30 hectares of their own vineyards and work closely with a further network of small growers in order to produce 2 million bottles a year.

2014 chateau saint-pierre, 4ieme cru classe st.julien
The 2014 vintage of this 'under the radar' Chateau is a blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc. Chateau Saint-Pierre is the smallest classed growth in Saint Julien but has a growing reputation for producing excellent, deeply coloured reds. It is part of the Chateau Gloria stable and often eclipses it's more illustrious stablemate in blind tastings. Prices are creeping up as their reputation grows but these beautifully made wines still represent good value.

A classic Amarone della Valpolicella, the Terre di San Zeno from Corteforte is a wonderfully decadent and sophisticated wine.

The wine is then bottled and released following an additional 12 month period in bottle. Although approachable when released, this tremendous Amarone will continue to develop in bottle for a good decade following release.
