There Are Downton Abbey and Duck Dynasty Branded Wines

Last night, my beautiful wife and I went to the wine shop.

What did I get? What television told me to.

They're real! The British serial drama Downton Abbey and the American reality TV show Duck Dynasty have their own branded wines.

Downton Abbey wines include a claret and a blanc. Duck Dynasty wines include a pink moscato, a chardonnay and a mixture of zinfandel, merlot, cabernet and sauvignon.

The last one is called Triple Threat Red Blend. How does it taste? Wine critic Jon Thorsen offers this review:

The 2011 Duck Commander Triple Threat Red Blend begins with lots of ripe fruit plus caramel and coffee aromas along with a bit of spice. Tasting reveals more ripe fruit, lots of chocolate and caramel notes along with some cherry cola and spice. It's all wrapped up in a smooth texture with soft tannins. It ends with more jammy ripe fruit, good length and sweet oak notes. This wine hits the inexpensive red blend bullseye -- if you're a fan of Apothic Red, Cocobon or the Murphy-Goode Homefront Red you'll love it!

In the comments, suggest what other television wines should taste like.

I believe it should say Cabernet Sauvignon not Cabernet and Sauvignon.

I bet a Star Trek branded wine would be out of this world.
