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

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
