Even though Snoop Dogg’s expensive red wine called DOOP DOGG Aldi’s only costs £9.99, does it taste better than other red wines?

NOW that the nights are getting colder, it’s time to swap the light crisp summer rosé for a nice warming glass of red. 

And while browsing the wine aisle for a bottle at his local Aldi, vino aficionado Tom Tryon spotted a rather hilarious dupe of a notorious celeb’s boozy beverage.

Tom regularly shares his wine expertise and recommendations with his 33.7k followers, and a recent clip of him reviewing Aldi’s latest cheeky copy racked up a huge 220k views.

“We all love an Aldi dupe,” the wine whizz began, “but this is hilarious.”

He then jumped to a shot of him showing off Cali Red, a swanky wine by the rapper Snoop Dog which sells for between £12 and £16.

“This is Aldi’s version,” he explained revealing a bottle of the supermarket’s The Reprobates California Red.

Instead of featuring Snoop Dogg in a hood like the original, Aldi’s one hilariously an actual dog wearing a hood.

Aldi’s version also comes in quite a bit cheaper, costing only £9.99.

“I’m going to put them to a taste test,” Tom continues, cleverly naming his contest “Snoop versus the dupe”.

“They’re both from California,” the beverage buff notes, “both big and juicy, fruity flavours.”

“Full-bodied, jammy, ripe,” he adds as he pours a small glass of each.

Testing Snoop’s offering first, he states: “Pretty big flavours, quite sweet, very ripe, jammy, fruity, vanilla-y, woody.”

He then takes a gulp of Aldi’s version, noting “you don’t get quite the same ripe fruitiness bursting out of the glass as Snoop Dogg’s.”

“But it’s a little bit more balanced, there’s a little bit more savouriness, it’s not quite so sweet,” he finds.

“But still full-bodied, plenty of flavour, lots going on there.”

Holding up Aldi’s vindicated vino, he declares: “this one takes it.”

In the caption, Tom explains a bit more about the reason for the slight difference in the taste, writing that “Aldi’s version uses Shiraz instead of a blend of Zinfadel, Petite Sirah, and a few other California favourites”.

And viewers in the comment clearly agreed with his verdict.

“Faaaarrr too sweet for me the Snoop one, as much as I wanted to love it,” one admitted.

Another came up with a canny slogan for Aldi’s vino: “Doop Dogg.”
