i'm a cabernet sauvignon (especially south african cabs) fan myself. i also enjoy riojas and barolos. when i drink whites i like german rieslings, just not from grapes left on the vine too long (too sweet). what say you?

2009 Layer Cake Cabernet Sauvignon
I got this the other day and its a pretty good wine for under $20.

i miss being able to buy wine at whole foods. i'm currently enjoying a 2001 cascina castlet policalpo monferatto rosso. pretty tasty after i let it breathe. i was a junior in high school when this wine was bottled.
August 25th, 2012 08:06 PM
I had been out of college for 4 years when it was bottled.

Screw tops are also a big plus.

Rubicon Estate Cask Cabernet is damn good. Not real hard to find either.

I make bushy very sad when it comes to my taste in wine.
My favorite right now is a Chocolate Merlot. I also have no problem with box wine, but I like to mix it 1/2 red 1/2 white.
I generally choose my wine by the label, the cuter the picture the more likely I am to buy it. Then even if it taste bad, I can pour it out and save the bottle

you seem to have no problem with the end results. do ya now?

nope. But a little cranberry juice makes Brunch the best meal of the week!!

Haven't had... ... any South African cabs! I need to change that.
I like Temp occasionally, but I rarely crave it. Barolo is too expensive for me at this point, but popping a 5 year old or younger barolo we'll teach any person really quick what tannins are
i also enjoy riojas and barolos.
German Rieslings are the ****ing shit. I find that they do sweet better than anyone else in the world. It may be super sweet, but it's always well balanced with other components: viscosity, acidity, fruit characteristics, structure...and it always seems to stretch from start to finish in a way that a lot of sweet wines fail to do.
when i drink whites i like german rieslings, just not from grapes left on the vine too long (too sweet). what say you?

Big fan of Washington...good value for the states.
Also a big fan of Rhone...Grenache is probably my favorite red varietal (and is blended in a lot of Riojas). The white Rhones are some of the most fascinating whites I've tasted.
Chardonnay from Burgundy is hard to beat (kind of pricey though). Definitely a better way to handle the g**** than anything California seems to try.
August 30th, 2012 03:47 PM
Pinot Noir and Cote Du Rhone
Only like sweet whites...big fan of a good Moscato D'Asti with a dark chocolate dessert.
August 30th, 2012 04:45 PM
every pinot noir i've ever had tasted like dirt to me.
August 30th, 2012 11:02 PM
I'm not sure of what kind of wine selection you have access to, but I have really enjoyed one from California branded "Pennywise" it is a great value, right in between $10-15 vintage is 2009
August 31st, 2012 08:27 PM
I'd never had any Pinot Noir until a guy gave me six bottles as a tip for a party from NoCal I was bartending. His winery is where they shot the movie Sideways. He sells the bottles for 175$ in his shop and Spago sells it for 65$ a glass. I must say it was very tasty.
September 3rd, 2012 12:35 PM
I can kind of see that...Though most California pinots (Sonoma county and Central Coast are the most common) are pretty damn fruit forward.

My girl drinks Kung Fu Girl Riesling by Charles Smith. Well she is just a Riesling girl period.

Oddly enough, I'm a fan of Justin (Paso). PF friggin Chang's actually has Isosceles!!! The great part is, it's only friggin $68...that's pretty cheap.
September 25th, 2012 02:42 PM
Their new packaging is pretty sharp. Justin has always been a pretty good entry level cab.
September 26th, 2012 07:06 PM
Anyone ever had any hot wine?
My wife still talks about the stuff they drank n Germany at Christmastime...I think they added mulling ****es and citrus rinds...kind of like cider.
September 26th, 2012 08:55 PM
its called mulled wine. i don't care for hot beverages so i don't like it.
September 26th, 2012 09:09 PM
How bad is it to like Relax Riesling? I love it. Looooove. LOOOOOVE. I think I can drink a bottle alone even.
September 26th, 2012 09:38 PM
if you like it then drink it.

Any new zealand sauv blancs, australian chards, big big fan of pinots, cabs, and syrahs.
The pricest/shwankiest bottle I ever had was a '90 Petrus, the tastiest white I ever had was a '97 Leeuwin Estates Artist series Chard, tastiest Pinot was probably a late '90s (cant remember) Arcus Estate Pinot, Tastiest merlot '97 Pine Ridge Crimson Creek merlot (might be the best bottle of wine Ive ever had actually), tastiest cab/red... hmmmmm maybe the 96-97 Viader? Thats a tough one... the St Supery red meritage from the late '90s was ****ing money as well. Oh and the Justin Isoceles red meritage was awesome, damn there are too many once I get to thinking about it.

a little dust on the bottle.
December 23rd, 2012 07:18 PM
Anyone ever try the Coppola's.
I've tried the Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and the claret.
Very good wine for under $20.
