Bon Appétit

Month ago

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:

I have a bottle of the Snoop Dogg wine and think it is terrible. I'm going to use it to cook with and hopefully it better serves that purpose. It was a disappointing buy.

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.

Why when we try US wines, do we always stay around California? NY And many other states have wine that is far better then any California wine.

Campo Viejo is a fantastic wine. In Russia 15$ is around 1100 rub, which is 3 times more than most people are used to pay for a bottle.

The secret service never used the media to spy on people. That's why they were effective and you arent. When they retired you fuckups thought you conquered. But no they gave you something they couldnt use. It's a suicide device. Your all going to kill yourselves just like everyone who tried to do it the last 130 years

That was a great video, André. I especially like the fact that you acknowledge everyone as his "own wine specialist", in terms of palate. I would truly recommend that you travel to Portugal (sometime when COVID lets you) and sample some of our wines. I would bet that you would hard pressed to find better price quality wines - I really don't know what portuguese wines do you get in the states. Maybe in a next video? All the best and keep drinking good wine!

Conclusion is... American cheap wine is fake wine... I really love american wine, Napa, Sonoma, Santa Barbara, Willamete Valley, Washigton State... great places! But the everyday stuff is just bad. Thats the diference between here in South America, and Europe compare to the USA. You can find cheap day-to-day good wine.
