19 Crimes Wine
I’ve seen this wine so many times in so many different stores and was completely skeptical, mainly because the bottle had such a gimmicky look. But boy was I in for a pleasant surprise!!
I will just dive right in and say that 19 Crimes will be in my top 5 wine choices for 2018! The texture was so buttery and smooth, yet bold, flavorful and boozy! My husband and I both fell in love with it! 19 Crimes has 6 different wine choices, I’ve had 2, the ‘Red Blend’ and ‘The Banished’ which is a dark Red. But My favorite by far is ‘The Banished”
The Banished was so smooth, it almost slides down your throat, with a fruity, but non-acidic taste on the tongue. One thing I’ve noticed about dark wines is that that they can carry a bit of harshness due to the tannins, requiring aeration, but 19 crimes executes balance perfectly well! No need for aeration and it as such a healthy melody of a flavor profile. I won’t even describe it because I INSIST that you try it for yourself. I you’re strictly a sweet wine drinker, you can try this with a frozen can of welch’s grape juice, cut up some fruit and make a Sangria. Or, you can pour the bottle into a crockpot with a few cinnamon sticks, add welch’s grape juice heat it for about an hour and viola, you’ve got “holiday in a cup”!
The cool thing about these wines is that there is a true historical backstory about each criminal on the bottles! Check it out here at their website 19crimes.com. I purchased these bottles at my local Kroger for about $10 each, which is very cheap. Try it and let me know what you think!
