Cabernet Sauvignon


WineScribble – Cabernet Sauvignon (Episode 227 – Part 2)

In the 2nd and last part of this episode, we continue our discussion with the fabulous WineScribble and get down to some tasting!

We each taste a Cabernet Sauvignon, WinsScribble, of course, tastes one from Cyprus, John M tastes one from Australia and John L tastes one from California USA.

They are all at different price points and, of course, given their different geographical origins, each has different qualities to the other two.

The wines tasted were:-

WineScribble’s Choice – Meth Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

John M’s Choice – Botham Merrill Willis Cabernet Sauvignon

John L’s Choice – The Original Dark Horse Cabernet Sauvignon

We hope you enjoy!

19 Crimes Cabernet Sauvignon (Episode 216)

In this episode, we taste another of the 19 Crimes Wines from South East Australia, this time their Cabernet Sauvignon.

These wines each depict a criminal deported to Australia for a crime committed in the UK, quite often for something like unauthorised fishing.

On the nose, we smelt Black Cherry, a touch of vanilla and a “Jammy” smell probably promoted by the full-on fruit notes.

On the palate, the wine had a great mouthfeel, with a lot going on the glass giving a complex combination of flavours and then finally leaving an after taste of cherries.

We mentioned in the video that another YouTuber, John from HillBillySelectReviews, had reviewed this wine with two of his pals and interestingly they also detected black cherry and Jamminess on the nose. They also came up with a hint of chocolate and raisin on the palate.

Albret La Vino de mi Madre Wine Review (Episode 183)

In this episode, we taste a fantastic 2013 blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from Spain.

The rough translation of the wines’ name is My Mother’s Wine.

It has a great rich colour, a great nose (smell) and then when tasted massive dark fruit flavours followed by the taste of lighter red fruits.

A great wine if you are interested in starting to try to identify more than one flavour from your wine.

Priorat Wine (Episode157)

In this episode, we taste a Priorat from Catalunya in Spain.

This wine is a blend of Garnacha, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Mazuela and Syrah and, given it’s alcohol by volume of 14.5%, it has a very light taste making it very interesting and easy to drink. Perhaps too easy!

The wine is Sainsbury’s own “Taste the Difference” brand and was available at the time of publishing for £12.00

Yellow Tail Jammy Red Roo Wine (Episode 138) 2

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?

Block 18 Tesco’s Finest Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon (Episode 120 Part 3)

In the last part of this episode, we taste Tesco’s Block 18 Cabernet Sauvignon.

The most expensive of the three we have tasted in this episode. Will the extra money be worth it?

In John’s opinion, this is a Cabernet Sauvignon for Cabernet Sauvignon drinkers. In other words, you probably would only appreciate the subtle differences from the cabernet sauvignon we tasted in part 1 – if you are not a Cabernet Sauvignon drinker you probably will think the cabernet sauvignon we tasted in part 1 would be better value for money.

Errazuriz Estate Series Cabernet Sauvignon (Episode 120 Part 2)

The second Cabernet Sauvignon we try from Chile is an Errazuriz Cabernet Sauvignon this time from the Valle del Maipo. This family-owned vineyard was founded in 1870 so has a lot of experience in producing excellent wine.

This wine was a great example of a Cabernet Sauvignon but did not quite hit the same spot as the wine we tasted in part 1 of this episode.
