Bon Appétit

Mánuði síðan

Sommelier André Mack has made a career tasting the finest of wines, but that doesn't mean he can't enjoy a bottle on the cheaper end of the spectrum. In fact, we asked him to enjoy twenty bottles of red wine under $15 and let us know his honest thoughts on them. Not all of these wines are winners (and that's part of the fun of it), but a few are and are well worth it.
Check out the wines below:

Really good, approachable video. I absolutely agree on that Yellow Tail rubbish. I'm Australian and could never bring myself to drink it. Mendoza must be one of the world's best value wine regions, though.

Yellowtail can be left at the bottleshop. Go Barossa valley or McLaren Vale for a good south Australian Red.

Wine is like Bob Dylan’s music. It’s actually awful, but people pretend to like it because they think they’re supposed to like it. I’ve had 7-11 wine and I’ve had $500 wine. They all taste like socks.

You can actually download a phone app called Living Labels that covers 9 brands including 19 Crimes. You scan the label and the actual label becomes a live video with history or other cool things. It's pretty freaky. For the Snoop Dog one, his label would come alive! lol!

Duplin is my favorite American Wine, it's $8 a bottle, made in North Carolina, and honestly tastes more expensive than it is. It doesn't FEEL like a cheap wine, especially if its aerated.

I’ve never had a beer or whiskey that’s gone bad before, it’s it because of all the acidity in the wine that makes it go rancid or are there still few fermentable sugars left that active inside the bottle?

I found Yellowtail at a 7-Eleven 14 years ago. It was OK. I'm a beer & whiskey drinker, and Campo Viejo is my favorite wine. Seriously, if it weren't for CV, I wouldn't bother with wine. OK, my doctor makes me bother with wine, but CV encourages me to actually drink it... instead of grape juice... or walking. Ugh. BTW, you got me interested in Bon Appetit again.
