Count ‘em – 26 sweet reds, tasted and reviewed. Who else would do more? Though, to be honest, there are probably dozens more out there that I haven’t gotten to, and I’m not not sure that I ever will. I’m only human.
Vintages aren’t listed, since many of the wines are non-vintage. In addition, most of the wines that that are dated are made to drink immediately and are made with a recipe that tries to make the wine taste the same every year. Hence, its vintage will make almost no difference.
• Robertson Natural Sweet Red ($6, sample): South African wine that tastes like it was made with pinotage – which is an acquired taste, even with sweet wine.
• Blue Fish Sweet Reel Red ($8, sample): German red that tastes like unripe red grapes mixed with sugar.
