Hollick The Bard Cabernet Sauvignon Coonawarra 2017

Australia (13.5%, Seven Cellars, Brighton, £ 12.95; Vineyards of Sherborne, Dorset, £ 12)

It is a beautifully structured wine, all in cedar and blackcurrant. Try it if you like burgundy.

Taste the Barossa Cabernet Merlot 2019 difference

Australia (14.5%, Sainsbury’s, £ 11.50)

A hug of a red bear, this is a thick textured blend of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Rich and spicy, and aged in oak barrels, it is a cozy wine for a cool night.

Ebenezer & Seppeltsfield Shiraz 2019

Barossa Valley, Australia (14.5%, M&S, £ 14)

Made by the Langmeil winery, this wine is aged in French and American oak barrels, and is thick, sumptuous and robust, with flavors of licorice and black fruit. A very good wine.

Beira Douro Touriga Franca 2016

Portugal (13.5%, Grape & Grind, Bristol, £ 14.50; Noble Grape, Cowbridge, £ 14.99)

It is one of the varietals used for port, it has a slightly floral scent and makes a red with lots of stuffing and a hint of pink berries.

Chateau Beau-Site 2015

St-Estèphe, Bordeaux, France (13%, Coop 124 stores only, £ 22)

You might not be thinking of Co-op for burgundy, but it has a really great lineup. It’s polished, dark and serious, from a ripe vintage. Also discover Ch Beaumont 2017 (£ 16) and Ch Sénéjac 2018 (£ 17).
