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

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

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.

Teefs, those Spanish reds are an awesome bargain!  What is your favorite region/varietal?

Comment by The Dutch Dastard on May 14, 2012 at 10:31am

Teefs, 

I'm really sorry for not adding any value to this discussion, and please please please don't see this as a personal offense, but i really fell from my chair because of your name. 

In Dutch, it roughly translates to: Like a bitch. 

I hope you are the sort of person who gets a laugh from that as well.

Compiling a photobook of awesome haircuts

I have a great appreciation for barbers who put in the work to churn out a really good looking hair for his customers. Here in Malaysia, its a trend thats only grown in the last 3-4 years, and maybe it's a chicken and egg thing, but the pomade usage has also increased tremendously along with the growth of barbers. I've recently started a project to compile photos of actual hairstyles from some barbers around Asia, through their social media account. My objective of doing this is to ensure that…See More
