    sweet means that you can taste a definite sweetness when drinking it, with a dry wine you can't (and with the right dry wine it makes it feel like you kinna ate alum or something- quite tannic )

    sorry- vaguely drunk at the moment- hope that made sense

    definitley go for a malbec- if it were human I'd run off with it and have its babies

    I'll happily sample any grape variety, I don't discriminate but nothing makes me happier than a firm, full-bodied, slap-you-in-the-face than slid-down-like-butter Aussie red. But I may be biased

    I love a wine thread!

    Does anyone besides Trinity and me like the big, kick-you-in-the-mouth reds these days? I've had single glasses of tremendous Petit Sirahs and Amarones at Tria in Philly recently.

    I would be up for trying some of these big, kick-you-in-the-mouth reds that you speak of. :p They sound interesting. Have you any sugestions?

    I'm not sure if they count as kick-you-in-the-mouth reds, but lately I'm really digging tempranillos and malbecs. As a fan of cheap wine too, I find Chilean reds have a great bang for the buck.

    I agree. Chile and Argentina are good places to look for affordable, drinkable wines. At the Mexican bar/restaurant across my old place in South Philly, the vast majority of reds were from down there. Spain also has some great wines.

    I generally like medium to expensive cabernet sauvignon and shiraz wines.

    I usually drink Allesverloren Shiraz from Swartland, South Africa. It makes me happy, it tastes very good with most kinds of meat and it's just awesome.

    Mightier than the tread of marching armies is the power of an idea whose time has come
