    Default Wine!

    I see there are a few threads about vodka, so they gave me the idea to pick everyone's brains about WINE! What are some of your favorites?

    I've fallen in love with Pepperwood Grove's wine, and it's very well priced at $10 for a 750 ml bottle. When onsale, it's more like $7. w00t Thus far I've tried their Merlot and Cabernet. In fact, this was the first cab I've had that made me go Mmmm...I was quite turned off by me previous experience with cab.

    I prefer ( in whites ) German wine, especially "Ausleser and up" grades, which would include Eiswein. In reds I prefer Pinot Noir.

    Robert Stemmler made a good Pinot, I remember. My favorite Pinot bottle was probably a Coron Pere et Fils Mercurey, described as "unpretentious" in a book I found ( stop laughing ) . From the same company I enjoyed their Vosne Romanee.

    I only like red wine, of which I prefer Pinot Noir. The nicest ones I've had have been from New Zealand, Tasmania and the Willamette Valley, Oregon.

    We need a moderator to lock this thread every time Pure Mercury logs on. It'll drive him nuts.

    I like both red and white, but the majority of what I've been drinking lately has been RED! Especially since we are moving into the colder months here, which call for bolder wines and darker beers! :p

    I've found I prefer sweet wines, although red wine's been giving me trouble (possible allergic reaction) but I haven't done extensive experimentation to figure out what it is (could be the sulfites, but I've had less trouble with whites too...)


    Mead absolutely rocks.
    This one variety of Blueberry wine I tried at the Maryland Wine Festival rocks, it has overtones of cinnamon (IMO). Made by Loew Vineyards (Mt. Airy, MD)

    a subject on which I know things!!! (I work at a winery!)

    anything red and dry usually leaves the cockles of my heart happy- though I must say that spanish reds, argentine malbecs and chilean carmeneres make me especially delighted

    Hey, whatver--can you (or anyone else) explain the difference between sweet and dry! As I drink more wine, I think I'm starting to get a feel for the concept...but I'm not quite sure yet! So please feel free, anyone, to offer exaamples and explanations! :p

    My friend has mentioned Malbecs a few times...he must <3 them. :p Next time he is in town, maybe I will get him to go pick a few new wines to expose me too. :p
