1WineDude TV Episode 34: Save Our Children! Also, “Getting” Social Media With Oscar’s 2008 Red

Vinted on June 2, 2011 binned in 1WineDude TV, crowd pleaser wines

In this episode, I chastise Vinos Navarra for making extra work for me (sort of), and profile Portuguese producer Oscar Quevedo‘s unique approach to wine and social media (quick review of one of his latest below after the vid), which seems to jive pretty well with the style of consumer engagement that Gary V. championed in our recent interview from the Nomacorc wine marketing symposium at Napa’s CIA.

 
2008 Oscar’s Red Wine (Douro)
Rating: B
Price: $14

Talk about robust.  And peppery, too, with a ton of black fruit that has concentration but isn’t screaming at you about its over-ripeness.  It’s a solid effort, and pretty much exactly what you’d expect from the Douro but with a friendlier, approachable streak, without at all being ponderous.  For sure this is a wine tailor-made for the grill (the closer you get to steak territory with this, the better).

Cheers!
