April 2013 Blind Tasting Red Wines This month Bruce and John did a blind tasting of Red wines. These wines happen to be very inexpensive wines. Our group tried its best to figure out the varietals and tasting notes but it did not go as well as we hoped. All the wines were in carafe's and probably were out too long. The wines were as follows: Ares Rioja Crianza 2008 $15.99 Charles Shaw Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 $2.49 Double Dog Dare Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 $8.99 (this was a box wine) Chateau Bois Redon Bordeaux Superieur 2010 $10.99 TJ Petit Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 $7.99 (this one was selected as the best this night) Chateaux Cantegril Sauternes 2001 $29.99 (this one was serve as a popsicle & was quite tasty) The evening included food provided by John & Bruce All & all an experiment in my opinion (one of the host Bruce) that needs more work if repeated, We tried new things, we tasted, we learned and now we move on to other new experiences in wine.
