2012 Beaujolais Nouveau


It was late November and we were having a simple meal of bison meat hamburgers and tater tots  so we thought we’d sample this year’s Beaujolais Nouveau. Don’t buy it! All you’ll be doing is throwing $12 in the garbage. I’ll be the first to tell you I’m not a BN fan but this is really just awful. Remember from our previous post that it’s only aged for 6-8 weeks…and you can tell.

colonelgrape: 10. It’s a “wine” I’ll give it that much….barely. It tastes like a grape Juicy Juice box laced with alcohol. Super grape and alcohol flavors that taste completely separate and awful. Apparantly my Aunt and Cousin like it with a bit of cassis liquor but I can’t see that saving this disaster.

MobyGrape: 12.  I know I was complaining that wine never just tasted like grapes, but I never realized that wine grapes taste like ass.  One day I hope to actually try one (I may have and just can’t remember, but I understand why I would wipe that from my memory).  I seriously considered drinking some Drano as a step up.  Despite it all, I have big plans for this hot mess in a bottle.  I know of two ways that terrible wine can redeem itself.  Stay tuned, I’ll put this guy through the wringer.
