6. Grace Vineyards 2010 Tasya's Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
Shanxi & Ning Xia China c.o.o. (China) £2 13%. There was blackcurrant and pencil shavings on the nose. In the mouth it was lean with more of those pencils going into a dry finish with a bitter taste. The fruit seemed stewed, and overall there was little true character.
7. Viña Caliterra 2007 Cenit
Colchagua Valley Chile n/k £35 14%. Ripe, sweet blackcurrant on the nose with an enamel/polish component. Deep, dark fruit, smooth at the front before the tannins grip you on the mid-palate. Subsequent tastes built up a wall of tannins that needed time or food to break down
8.  Parker Coonawarra Estate 2006 Terra Rossa Cabernet Sauvignon
South Australia Australia n/k £35-40 14.5%
