Re: Starting to like wine...the Red version

Really? That is a good brand too. For Austrailian wine lovers, this brand is recommended. I can't believe I am reading this after all the positive comments said here on Austrailian wine.

Re: Starting to like wine...the Red version

I use to have a lot of different ones, but now I am down to a Red (cab shaped), a white (which looks bigger than many would associate with white wines except in France), port glasses, and Champagne...

Re: Starting to like wine...the Red version

Light means in taste, color, and/or body.

Aussie wines are none of those.

Re: Starting to like wine...the Red version

You thought that was light? Fruit forward indeed.

Jacob's Creek is another similar wine/price point you may want to consider. Their cab-shiraz blend adds more dimension than just straight...

Re: Starting to like wine...the Red version

Already off to a good start... That is a solid Spanish wine with a recognizable label.

I picked up a 1991 Torres Grand Reserva for $25 in bin ends on Saturday. My girlfriend and I are anxious...

Re: Starting to like wine...the Red version

You'll have to get by Camber first. If you come by for a port night, I will give you a couple to take home.

Re: Starting to like wine...the Red version

Yes. I suggest that everyone pour the same wine into different glasses and judge for yourself.

If you ever questioned whether a good glass can make wine taste better. I'll bet you on that one...

Re: Starting to like wine...the Red version

Reidel is the most popular fine port glass in USA. Libby makes a nice small red wine glass that looks just like the Reidel at just a couple of dollars. The main difference is the Libby has a rolled...

Re: Starting to like wine...the Red version

A list of "Newbie Must Try list of wines" is a nice idea. I would recommend narrowing/defining what wines can be on the list or why they are in the list. Major definers would be price range, food...

Re: Starting to like wine...the Red version

Holy Sh**!

Knowing how traditional wine was made back then, that must have been a blockbuster! Hence it's staying power today. Wines of similar alcohol today do not have the natural acid or...

Re: Starting to like wine...the Red version

Would have to disagree with this. Just because it makes them happy and fits their budget does not mean it's a good wine (or beer). There are plenty of honest wines with real character at every...

Re: Starting to like wine...the Red version

Austrailian wine in general tastes too manipulated either by too much extraction, high alcohol, and almost all lack any terrior. They taste like concocted wine syrup. Mollydooker really typifies...

Re: Starting to like wine...the Red version

I am not even going to comment on that one... I would not consider it cultured or refined at all, but that is what is fun about wine; there are many opinions and different tastes.

What are your...

Re: Starting to like wine...the Red version

A good general rule (feel free to argue) - Don't buy a red wine over 14.1% alcohol unless it's a CdP. Yes, Zin's are an exception, but don't buy over 14.5%.

To put this in perspective, the...

Re: Starting to like wine...the Red version

Blind tastings are really difficult, especially if they are of same body and color. Not every wine is true to its terrior either which further complicates it.

I am a believer that weather can...

Re: Starting to like wine...the Red version

Cab is best blended as is most wine. Only a few grapes are really "meant" or can stand to be by themselves.

Buy wines from an chateau, estate, or producer. Wine should come from a specific...

Re: Starting to like wine...the Red version

For a great red that the is bold and has something going on, try a Dao from Portugal. You can buy an awesome one for under $15 and it tastes noting like the plunk that most are drinking. Dao's are...
