19 Crimes Red Wine (Episode 187)   Recently updated !

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/

1000 Stories Zinfandel (Episode 160)

In this episode, we taste a great Zinfandel, perhaps the best wine we have tasted this year!

To begin with, it smells wonderful a great start to the tasting.

A full on taste of cherries and blackcurrant and so light on the tannins – extremely well balanced. A really lush wine, although unfortunately, they have already sold out of this particular example – it must have been good!
