Cimarosa Californian Ruby Cabernet 2010.
Stalky green fruit. Don’t go there.
5.49  78/100
Cimarosa Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon  2011
I expect off putting green unripe stalky character in cheap cabernet but this avoids it and provides ripe blackcurrant fruit. 
4.49  86-87/100
Cimarosa Chilean Merlot 2010
Am shocked to discover a sub €5 Chilean merlot that I’d be happy to drink is a shock, but this has classic varietal plum and dried fruit character.

It has some of merlot’s dried fruit character but not a bit short and simple
5.29  84/100

A bit green, a bit tannic, a bit South African which means it lacks drinkability.

It has some cabernet blackcurrant fruit but it’s short and a bit green.
5.29  79/100

Pinotage on alabel isn’t usually a good start and this lives up to that. Simple and bland.
4.99  77/100
Fairglobe South African Fairtrade Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot 2011
cab and merlot should give blackcurrant and plum and this does and it’s smooth and drinkable, which is rare in cheap Cape wines.
5.99  87/100
Cimarosa Australian Shiraz 2011
Dark fruit but a toffee-ish edge that suggests it’s ageing too quickly or been subject to heat somewhere along the line is not a good sign.

Cimarosa Australian Shiraz/Cabernet Sauvignon 2010
Reasonable dark fruit but simple.
4.99  80/100
