    mmm....wine

    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?

    I had been out of college for 4 years when it was bottled.

    In a Shoe with sooo man children...what to do?

    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

    PS after this post, I might be single or just ban from posting in his threads

    Haven't had... ... any South African cabs! I need to change that.

    i also enjoy riojas and barolos.
    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

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    I can kind of see that...Though most California pinots (Sonoma county and Central Coast are the most common) are pretty damn fruit forward.

    Their new packaging is pretty sharp. Justin has always been a pretty good entry level cab.

    Doesn't matter if its a 2 dollar bottle of wine or a 150 dollars bottle of wine, as long as you like it then its good.

    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.

    Anyone ever try the Coppola's.

    I've tried the Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and the claret.

    Very good wine for under $20.
