Wine: Snoop Dogg, Cali Red 2019

Winery: 19 Crimes, California

Why drink it? Yes, Snoop Dogg, like many celebrities, has a wine. The label simply says: composition – red wine, origin – California. A blend of Petite Syrah and Zinfandel (and maybe a touch of Merlot?), if you enjoy the juicy red fruit flavours of Zin, the candy-like jammy-ness of this bottle is will be enjoyable. The colour is a deep, bright red with purple undertones. The aromas? Slightly toasted, a hint of vanilla wafers, and of you take a deep sniff, BBQ potato chips. Smoother than you might expect on the palate, with blueberries and hazelnut flavours, it finishes with a slightly sweet note, perhaps like Snoop himself.

Pair with: For a full-on Snoop Dogg experience, pick up a copy of his cook book, From Crook to Cook, and give a recipe a shot. Perhaps the spaghetti and meatballs, or the fried bologna sandwich with chips. Or find episodes of Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party to watch for inspiration.

Price: $20

Music pairing: Lay Low, Snoop Dogg
