    And you can get liquor at most grociery stores here- just not on Sunday. And we certainly can't receive or send wine by the mail between here and other states! (I hear all about THAT law at work )

    Is the Coppola a Syrah or a Petite Sirah?

    I could swear up and down it was a Petite Sirah, but it was last year I drank it. I've been on a Carmenere/Zin kick lately

    I usually prefer a Petite Sirah to a Syrah

    You like the big, tannic reds then? I am fond of both of them myself. Petite Sirah has that smack-you-in-the-mouth, take-all-the-spit-out flavor that I usually find exhilarating.

    Durif - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    It has big tannins, but decently forward fruit. Nice dark purple color.

    A good petite syrah has a slight peppery bite and enough tannins to make you feel like you've turned into a cat. It's the wine equivalent of a fight with Chuck Norris

    I like a good big, tannic red wine. I do love a good grenache blend any day, especially either a spanish or rhone meritage blend- both tannic and complex. Nero d'Avola is a good Sicilian red with some backbone, and another (that I've mentioned before) is carmenere- most commonly chilean.

    though, against the "wisdom" of Sideways, I'd choose a merlot over a pinot noir on most occasions (unless I was eating salmon)... so take my opinion with a bit of salt, or tannins

    Wine is great! It's awesome because I can run windows apps without much problem! I can run Flash on Linux using wine, and uTorrent too! I don't think there is a windows equivilant to Wine...
