Some recent empties. No in-depth tasting notes. They were all fine, the M&S Montepulciano was particularly rich, and the Porta Carmenère was beefier and less leafy and even more enjoyable than I expected. This latter is a wine that Taserra in Dublin have inserted into my local supermarket through the good offices of former Bubble Brothers employee Brendan Crotty. Keep up the good work, Brendan. Not shown - don't want people to think we sell wine or anything - are Bubble Brothers' own sublime Brightwater Sauvignon Blanc from Nelson, NZ and Goedverwacht's smooth'n'smoky Acre of Stone Shiraz. I was really pleased with my choices there.
