Hello everyone, it’s Enock from LiquarMan! Today, I want to share with you my blind tasting review of the top 5 red wines that you can buy for under $20. I gathered a group of fellow wine enthusiasts to help me taste and rank these wines, and we were blown away by the quality of what we found.
The Setup: Blind Tasting 20 Wines Under $20
To start, I rounded up 20 different red wines, all priced under $20, and labeled them with numbers. I then invited my friends over for a blind tasting, so that we could assess each wine without being influenced by its label or price point.
We tasted each wine, taking careful notes on its appearance, aroma, flavor, and mouthfeel. After much deliberation, we narrowed the selection down to the top 5 wines that we felt offered the best overall value for their price.
The Top 5 Wines Under $20
Here are the top 5 wines that we selected, in order of our preference:
- La Posta “Pizzella” Malbec 2018 (Argentina) – $13
- Bella Cosa Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 (California) – $16
- Decoy Red Wine Blend 2018 (California) – $20
- Castello di Gabiano Chianti 2015 (Italy) – $16
- Crazy Creek Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 (California) – $19
The Winner: La Posta “Pizzella” Malbec
Our group was unanimous in selecting La Posta “Pizzella” Malbec as the clear winner. This wine had a beautiful deep red color, with aromas of red fruit and earth. On the palate, it offered flavors of black fruit and a hint of vanilla, with a smooth and well-balanced finish. At only $13, we felt that this wine offered an incredible value and would be an excellent choice for anyone looking for a high-quality red wine at an affordable price.
Our blind tasting of 20 red wines under $20 was a fun and educational experience. We were impressed by the quality and variety of the wines that we tasted, and we hope that our rankings will help you in your own search for great affordable wines. Whether you’re a seasoned wine enthusiast or just starting to explore the world of wine, there are plenty of fantastic options out there that won’t break the bank. Cheers!
