Some "new" wines from Tesco

Whenever I'm in Tesco I always peruse the reds for any new wines, bargains etc. Last weekend I found two new candidates amongst the usual suspects and they are pictured above.

Prunus Dao Vinho Tinto 2010 - €9.99
Hmmmm. I decanted this for a couple of hours, but it still tasted a bit cheap and cheerful. It cost less then a tenner so maybe I had unrealistic expectations. Meh. 

Trapiche Fincas Malbec 2010 - €12.00
I've had a mixed relationship with Trapiche Malbec over the years. In 2009 I loved it. In 2012, not so much. I'm not even sure if the wine above is the same wine, I suspect it is, but I can't find it on the Trapiche website. This time out, I liked it; it was still quite fruity but there was a little body and a decent finish. If Malbec is your bag then you probably won't go wrong here.

So in conclusion, eh....can't really recommend either.
