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.

19 Crimes Red Wine (Episode 187)

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.

To find out more about Annabelle’s channel take a look at her website https://winescribble.com/
