One of America’s Top Sommeliers Taste Tests Celebrity Wines


– I’m Patrick Cappiello, Eater National’s Sommelier of the Year and winner of Wine Spectator’s Grand Award and today, I’m gonna grade celebrity wines. (upbeat rock music) So, this is Mike Ditka. The name of this wine is The Champion. Still has a very high view of himself. From the Napa Valley, eh, so he’s sourcing his wine from the most expensive real estate in California. I would assume it’s gonna
be a fantastic wine. That does not smell good, like a dirty diaper,
that’s what it smells like. It’s kinda light and thin. It’s sour. This is not a touchdown, that’s for sure. I’m gonna give this one a ‘D’. Stick to announcing
football, Mike, please, for all of our sake. Alright, next we have Miraval Rose, made by Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. I mean, there’s no way
it’s made by Brad Pitt or Angelina Jolie, but, they’ve spent some money to have somebody make it for ’em, so I’m sure
it’s nothing but the best. Comes from the south of
France, which is probably the most famous place for rose. Smells good, smells pretty green. Smells like rose from Provence. Yeah, it’s pretty dry, pretty fresh. I’d give this like a, like a ‘B’. Yeah, not bad. Alright, next we have Caduceus. The wine made by Maynard James Keenan, who is the lead singer of the
rock band Tool and Pucifer. And he’s actually, dude is
seriously passionate about wine. Sometimes I think he’s more excited about making wine than
he is about making music, although I do love his music. Naga is the wine, here and the wine’s made in Arizona. Definitely a little bit meatier, more like sausage kind of smell to it, but in a good way and a little spicy. I would say like, kinda peppery. Good concentration. It’s not too overpowering in alcohol, it, it has some restraint and great acidity. And good length, like you can taste the wine for a significant period after drinking it. I would give this an ‘A’ minus. And that’s not just ’cause
I’m afraid of Maynard, but I am (chuckles). Okay, next we have Wayne Gretzky Estates. I didn’t know he had an estate. That’s kinda cool. Let’s see what this wine’s all about. (chugs) Wow, it smells like California cabernet. I mean, it’s like, unmistakable, like, black currant, like, really
explosively aromatic. It tastes like a predictable
California cabernet. It’s not too dry, it’s not too sweet, it’s just kinda middle of the road. It seems like, kinda safe to me, which, you know, he never played his career safe, so I don’t know why he’d play his wine safe. I’m gonna give this a, a ‘B’ minus. So the next wine is White Girl Rose. It’s made by Fat Jew. I guess I shouldn’t say that. That’s amazing that that counts as a celebrity nowadays, pretty sad. Let’s give it a shot. It looks like rose. It smells like, rotten. It’s uh, not what you
would expect from rose. Tastes worst than it smells. Feel bad for White Girls. This one is pretty bad. Yeah, it’s terrible,
like, it’s for sure now. This is the guy who, like,
stole from everybody, right? Wonder if he stole this recipe for his wine from someone. He should give it back. That’s for sure. So, what did we learn today? We learned that some celebrities know how to make wine and some celebrities
probably don’t make wine. I think in the end, you should only buy wines that taste good and not buy wines from people who you idolize on television. I’m Patrick Cappiello from Playboy.com.

  1. MJK is the only one that actually is involved with the making, Brad & Ang just adopt a small village & force them to make it

  2. FAIL!!!!!

    he didn't try DICK VERMEIL'S wine!!!!

    the ol' ball skipper's turning in his grave…. and he ain't dead yet!!!!

    the Dickster is NON-PLUSSED!!!!!

  3. Out of all of those MJK is probably the only who is actually actively involved in the wine making process of his wine.

  4. "Smells like a dirty diaper" LOL– I was doing some work at Ditkas house back in the nineties while they were prepping for a big party, stacked outside in the hot summer sun were cases and cases of the cheapest wine available.

  5. JUST gotta say professional or not. It looks stupid AF when you spit out your drink like a little girl. I know you don’t wanna get a buzz on but srsly come on man. Toughen up

  6. I was keeping my fingers crossed that he would judge Maynard James Keenan's wine…and when he did and it was good, I was so happy! Wish he would've done Kyle McLachlan's.

  7. I have watched a one of these guys do a double blind taste test in nappa they couldn't differ between an expensive wine and cheap wine there all full of shit

  8. I learned that you never taste a label, try these again blind, without your clever pompous know it all attitude. You evaluate wine like a fratboy, not a professional. Grow up and go get some real shops. Douche

  9. I'd consider it to be a more objective, and truly "blind" test if they didn't let him see the bottles before tasting the wines. Seeing an item's brand/label before consuming it often has the effect of priming the taster to like or dislike it, usually because they already have preconceived ideas about the product before diving in.

  10. He will eventually choke on wine…..cause he chokes at everything else stick a red straight in your bung hole….

  11. There was a famous test done where they switched the labels of fancy wine with cheap wine and these supposed “professionals “ couldn’t tell the difference. Basically said the cheap wine was better than the high priced wine simply because it had the better label on I️t …

  12. This would have been better if it had been a blind taste test. This just makes him seem like a pretentious ass giving his unwarranted opinion on various celebrities.

  13. how every one of these awful wine review videos is scripted:

    Listen to the connoisseur hold back an orgasm as he reveals to the audience his titles and awards with a shitty grin. The wines start out with something awful and is described with an unusual visualizer word. Think burned tires or a ham sandwich. Next is a wine that's halfway decent and will end up being the top rated wine. Here you'll find the typical words to describe wines. fruity, depth, plumb. Next give a short story of the next wines history and swirl the glass. Hold it up to the light for full effect. next up is the 'tied-for-worst' wine. This one always gets the spit bucket. then end with something blow average. Conclude that all the wines in the category are hit-and-miss and that you should instead make better choices.

    I give this series a D.

  14. Wayne Gretzky Estates source their grapes from either The Okanogan or Niagara. Wouldn’t hurt if he read the bottle instead of dismissing it calling it typical California wine.

  15. This is a stupid test because he was clearly influenced by the his knowledge and opinion of people who made the wines. No serious wine drinker is going to taste ‘white girl rose’ by the fat Jew and not expect it to be terrible.

  16. there is no such thing as an objective standard for good wine. therefore anything you say is completely subjective and your point of view only.

  17. I’d like to see what he thinks of pink pistol wine (Miranda Lambert’s wine).. I live in her hometown and I’m really tired of how much her shit is promoted

  18. I don't know why he did not mention that the Brad Pitt wine was made by a real brand of wine maker in France who e.g. made one of the highest rated chateaneuf du Pape? They just marketed this but the wine is made by professionals…

  19. Don’t forget about A Perfect Circle.

    If y’all are into wine, vacation to the Canadian side of Niagara Falls. Gretzky as well as maybe 30 other wineries over there, not to mention the falls are amazing. Head to Niagara on the lake. Worth it

  20. Guys got nothing on Marc Almert! He can tell you how old the grapes were. Some good wine comes out of the Napa Valley. Helped a lot of French wine producers when they had problems, but Ameeican wines aren't the greatest imo.

  21. See, Maynard actually makes his wine and he did a lot of research to make sure it was a good one. It shows

  22. Well maynerd actually makes the wine and tastes it before her sells it so yah I guess we know why his is the best
