Oooh. What cool labels. I'll be interested to hear about them. Nice video too:)

Cheers!

Totally! I love the Vegas theme... let's see if the wine is worth "letting it ride!" :)

Thank you for the compliments on the video... I am trying to get better at filming and editing with my Flip! I think it's starting to come along! :P

Cheers!

Cool - love the use of video, plus Elvis is always a big hit! That Rose wine should be an interresting one.

Thanks Josh! :)

The Rose seems interesting but I'm also stoked about the Carmenere... I tend to really like Chilean Carmere!

Cheers!

I always have some concerns when a wine feels a need for a gimmicky label. I'll be interested to see how you feel about the wines.

The Wine Whore said...

As you should! I was hesitant to accept these samples just under that exact premise. Then again, this is a great chance to show honesty despite marketing, freebies, or any other BS.

Am I going to like all of these wines? Doubtful!

Will there be ones that I like more than others? Of course!

Now the trick is being as honest as possible so that people know EXACTLY what to expect... besides a gimmicky label, that is! :)

Cheers!

... oh, one more thing! Did I mention that these are Chilean wines! I find it interesting to find such gimmicky marketing for wine in an otherwise less flashy region such as Chile.

Have you seen this with any other Chilean wines?

Richard Auffrey said...

I believe some of the wines also come from Argentina. As the parent company though is Australian, then the fact the labels are gimmicky is not much of a surprise to me.

The Wine Whore said...

Yep! You are 100% correct! :)

Now the question is, how do you think I should review these? What do you think would be the most important things to note?

Richard Auffrey said...

I don't think you need to review them in any special way. Just review them as you would any wine at that price point. Just be honest as usual.

The Wine Whore said...

Ok cool! That's a promise I KNOW I can keep! :)
