19 Crimes Red Wine (Episode 187)   Recently updated !

We have the great pleasure and privilege of tasting a bottle of 19 Crimes Red wine from South East Australia, with a very special guest – Anabelle McVine from the YouTube Channel WineScribble.

John L had first tried this in a restaurant in the United States where it cost considerably more than the price he was able to buy it for in the UK from a discount store – BM.

The wine is aged in a rum barrel to help give it it’s unique taste profile.

As experienced red wine drinkers both John M and Annabelle thought the taste profile was not quite complex enough for their personal tastes. They both felt. however, that if you were beginning your red wine journey this would be an excellent bottle to try.

Wolf Blass Yellow Label Malbec (Episode 142)


This Malbec is produced in Australia, only a very small amount of Malbec is produced in Australia, compared to Argentina where 62% of their wine production is Malbec.
First impressions are very good, in fact tasting better then some of the Argentine Malbecs we have reviewed recently. Tasting like a Malbec should do and for the price of £7.00 excellent value.

Well worth a try at the price (available from Morrisons at £7.00)!

Yellow Tail Jammy Red Roo Wine (Episode 138)

In this episode, we taste a wine we hope will help us identify the “Jammy” taste people talk about when tasting some wine.

The episode follows on from the episode where we try to explain what some people might call “Snobby wine Terms”.

So we selected this particular wine, Yellow Tail Jammy Red Roo because it actually has Jammy on the label.

The blend is made up of around 80% Shiraz, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% of other red varietals.

The wine smells sweet and of strawberries. John M could also detect vanilla on the nose.

The wine has hardly any tannins which give it that jammy taste.

Summarising the wine John M says it has that sticky sweetness, it’s soft, fruity, easy, incorporating a lot of things that many people want from a wine.

John also felt that this wine would be a great introduction to Red Wine for someone who drinks White wine and would like to get into Red.

Ring-bolt Australian Cabernet Sauvignon (Episode 121 Part 3)

In the last part of this episode, we taste another Cabernet Sauvignon from Australia.

This time we taste a 2017 Ring-bolt available for £9.00

On the nose a typical Cabernet Sauvignon, but once again a little short on the length.

Worth, however, in our opinion, the extra £2.50 or £3.00 over the cost of the wines tasted in Part 1 and Part 2.

Sainsburys Taste the Difference Australian Cabernet Sauvignon (Episode 121 Part 2)

In part 2 of this episode. we taste an Australian Cabernet Sauvignon from Sainsburys Taste the Difference range.

Whilst a slightly “bigger” Cabernet Sauvignon when compared to the Morrisons Cabernet we tasted in Part 1 the length (or the time the taste lasts in your mouth) in very short.

Morrisons Australian Cabernet Sauvignon (Episode 121 Part 1)

In this episode, we taste three Australian Cabernet Sauvignon, the first of which we taste in this part of the episode is a Western Australian Cabernet Sauvignon purchased from the supermarket chain Morrisons for the price £6.99.

A great fruity wine, but maybe the strength of the alcohol overwhelms the flavour somewhat?
