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.

Asda Moneda Chilean Merlot (Episode 147)

In this episode, we taste a Chilean Merlot available from Asda at £5.00 per bottle.

This wine is really fruity, low on tannin – really tasty!

The only downside with this wine is that it does not have much length, but for this price, there is no way one can complain!
