This so good, it's criminal?
Time to Treat yourself, break your normal routine and have a glass of wine!
The wine tried this week is "19 Crimes" Red Blend
This wine was priced a tad bit higher at $11.99/bottle.
The description of the wine reads:
"Our red blend bears the same traits as those banished to Australia. Defiant by nature, bold in character. Always uncompromising. It's a taste you'll never forget."
The matte greenish/black bottle, the "OLD Time" mugshot label, you take the time to read the back of the bottle:
Nineteen Crimes turned criminals into colonists. Upon conviction, British rogues, guilty of at least one of the convicted 19 crimes were sentenced to live in Australia, rather than death.
This punishment by "transportation" began in 1786, and many of the lawless died at sea. For the rough-hewn prisoners who made it to shore, a new world awaited.
As pioneers in a frontier penal colony, they forged a new country and new lives, brick by brick.
This wine celebrates the rules they broke and the culture they built.
Every criminal featured on the label is a real criminal and not those of fiction.
Ok, maybe I just bought this one for the cool bottle, and the dangerous name.
Lets get to the taste:
The taste is a decent red blend, It is listed as a medium-full bodied blend. A smooth red that anyone would enjoy.
At first sip, you notice a sweetness with the taste of blackberry and other fruity notes. After a few more sips, i did taste the undertones of cacao and vanilla.
The wine is predominately made from a blend consisting of 82% Shiraz, 12% Grenache & 6% Mataro.
The wine is dry and slightly sweet. Dry wine is not my favorite, but the hint of sweetness (from Shiraz) made this wine enjoyable.
Raise your wine glass and give a toast! This wine is a decent buy!
