Pirque Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 - Case of 6
Blind choice proves a success
There was a deal on where they had a double reduction. To make the deal sweeter, i chose two hi ranking wines that were also reduced and picked this cab and the casa leone cab too. Turns out i'd had the Casa before, but forgot - it's lovely BTW. This pirque is probably the star, but i'm still making my mind up. I'm no connoiseur; i just know what i like. The Pirque is really rich and meaty, without being too mollassesy or treacly. To my mind, it's like someone took a cab and reduced it to 2/3 volume - it's so intense it's practically chewey.
I recieved 2 cases for £52.00 inc postage. deal of the year as far as i'm concerned.

This is a brilliant cabernet sauvignon. One of my favourites and would definately recommend to anyone who appreciates a really good wind

ALWAYS GREAT VALUE FOR MONEY
The Major Supermarkets are increasingly guilty of offering 'half price deals' that are questionable.
A once prominent wine critic wrote in his 2004 wine guide..."offering chocolate, licorice, roasted berries & commanding tannins. A sensational wine. 17.5/20, £6.50".
He was describing the 2001 vintage of this wine, available from M&S. This is my fourth consecutive vintage, and although they vary a little this description is still largely true today.
It is also a demonstration of an honest pricing policy by M&S, and i bought mine on offer so i think this can safely be descibed as an excellent 'deal'.
