Hello once again Guys and Girls, we are back with another episode of Wine Blogging Wednesday (WBW22 to be exact). Tim Elliot, a fellow wine podcaster at Winecast, is hosting this month’s extravaganza and has selected ‘Red wines with less than 12.5% alcohol’ as the goal. This is in contrast to the Girl’s wishes of finding wines with a much higher alcohol content, but I digress.
I looked high, and I looked low, but being form California, it was somewhat difficult to adhere to the rules, so we chose 2 different wines for our assignment: Santa Ema 2002 Merlot (12.8% ABV) and the 2001 Quinta D’Aguieura (12% ABV). (Ironically, Kate Hopkins of the Accidental Hedonist originally tasted a 2002 Santa Ema for the original Wine Blogging Wednesday, waaay back in September of 2004.)
You’ll have to listen to the podcast to hear our thoughts on these low alcohol wines.
