Tandem Ars Nova 2012, Navarra, Spain (14%, corkingwines.co.uk, £69.60/case of six)
A very well-meshed, smooth blend of cabernet sauvignon, tempranillo and merlot from the Navarra region of Spain. You can really smell the cassis flavour of the blackcurrant, but there’s also a roundness and brightness – the wine has a smooth texture and a refreshing edge.
