Should have read the whole article before posting. I'll think of a specific wine with the qualities listed in the article.

Some manly wines. I've tried both of Vongravens and the Mötorhead shiraz. Very good balanced and fullbodied. Mötorhead has surprisingly little eukalyptus taste for an Australian shiraz.

Hello Wine lovers. I have been trying different wines for a little while now and still my favorite is a beautiful full bodied red wine called Nero D'Avalo. That is the Grape of course but so far every vinyard I have had it from is fantastic. That and a Malbec is always a safe bet.

Hello to all vinophiles. I am new to both the AoM site and to this illustrious group specifically so I hope you will allow me to join you in the discussion of the art and pleasure of wine imbibition.

I am an Englishman weened on claret and Burgundy and now living in Western Australia - not far from the wonderful wine producing area of Margaret River. I have, over the years, gained a little expertise on all aspects of the wine business, including that of operating a commercial winery in Australia, as well as conducting wine appreciation courses. So anything I can contribute to this manly subject I would be delighted to do.

Looking forward to knowing more about US and Canadian wine styles, so anything you can suggest or propose would be most welcome.

Here's to an enjoyable, sharing relationship.

Cheers
Adrian

Dear Wine Lovers,
Maybe you can help? At least you may be interested: Being Manly: A Manly Wine? A Manly Whine.

Great Group. I work at a wine store and am trying to soak up as much knowledge about wine as possible.

I'm the sommilier at Radnor Wines in Nashville. I figured out that the first 6 months of the year, I taste or drink 45-60 wines a month. Jan-June is when we look for new products and such. July-Dec is slower, I cut back to somewhere around 10-15 wines a month. But as you can tell I love to drink Wine.

Good group. Started drinking a lot of Penfolds Koonoga Hill Cab-Shiraz recently. A GREAT red for under $10. (Australian)
