Cabernet Sauvignon

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)

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.

Nederburg South African Cabernet Sauvignon (Episode 119 Part 3)

In the last part of this episode where we taste three Cabernet Sauvignon wines from South Africa, we taste a Nederburg Cabernet Sauvignon.

First impressions on the eye are good although on the nose it did not quite seem like a Cabernet Sauvignon. In fact, we thought it has a nose more akin to Pinot Noir.

The taste, however, was much more representative of a Cabernet Sauvignon. certainly the best of the trio!

The price is £5.75
