Wine Aerators

Started by Charles Alexander Rasmussen. Last reply by Regular Joe Apr 25, 2014. 3 Replies

I would like to know what the wine connoisseurs out there think of using wine aerators to enhance their wine drinking experience. I received one for my birthday about a year ago and I quite like it.…Continue

Hi everyone,I just found this group and was hoping you all could provide some advice for me. I'm turning 21 in 13 days, and since I live in the USA, that means I can finally start buying alcohol in…Continue

So I've been moving more and more from Merlot over to the Cabs.  As I am still relatively new in the wine "field" I've been stuck with the whole trial and error methods of finding good wines.  Found…Continue

hey fellas... I understand that being an Aussie some advise on here might be limited in my neck of the woods lol... but I definitely have a love for the red stuff. I normally favor shiraz, or shiraz blends... 

Can anyone suggest some really good ones?  - I have my favorites... and am keen to explore new horizons to gain some education if anyone wants to chat - Cheers!

Hi guys, I'm very happy I found this page. I am a sommelier with many years of experience. Don't hesitate to ask me if you need anything !!!!

 

Just finished service, and this evenings wine of choice was M Chapoutier Chateauneuf-Du-Pape 2006. Great wine from a great producer. Nice high tannin, full bodied red wine full of berry aromas, with a slight hint of pepper during the medium to long finish. Thumbs up !

Hello everyone. I am new to the group and thought I would throw my usuals out there. When It comes to wine I prefer red, and I like that red to be: Merlot, or Pinot Noir. I will drink white wines more so with fish and deserts, but I will drink red anytime.

I had a really good 2009 Shiraz at Woody's in Tupelo, MS, but can't remember the maker. Also, if you're willing to shell out a little more, not alot, but more than a normal bottle, try a 2010 Alexander Valley Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon.

Prefer dry Reds, particularily merlot, cab mix; most red products from Aussie Penfolds Bin X are great and reasonably priced.

Being from the pacific northwest I am a sucker for a Oregon Pinot noir... The latest one I am stuck on is the 2009 Winderlea Ana Pinot noir. The best way I can describe it would be Lush. I was completely blown away. At onely 313 cases produced I am happy I have another stashed away...

Dutch,

A good Port is of great value.  Sometimes your food calls for it.  Fortified wines are a subject I know very little about.  However, certainly recognize their worth.

How do you guys see ports? For some reason (i honestly don't know why) i have the idea that a lot of americans don't consider it something to be drunk. 

Comment by Beauregard Sparticus on May 20, 2012 at 2:08pm

I had the opportunity this week to have some pretty amazing wines including Domaine Romani Conti's La Tache '05, and Richebourg "06.

Comment by Teefs S. on May 17, 2012 at 10:25am

I like tempranillos from Rioja, also blends of Temp., Cab. and Merlot - very rich.  Perfect with or without food and just before bed - pleasant dreams!

Misleading Headlines and Worthless Journalism

So I'm sure more than a few on here will stop and say, "I've seen this like 10 times today!" Sorry. I'm really not good at using my phone for these things. Anyhow - here's the topic: Lately I've noticed quite a few right wing blogs (I myself tend to lean that direction) writing sensational headlines like "Top Generals take Action to Arrest Obama", then the actual "article" has nothing at all to support the headline. Now I'm sure this nonsense exists on both sides of the aisle but come on, we…See More
