Perfect weather for wine...

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Things are cooling down lately, smell of autumn, earthy... perfect for a cool glass of wine, eucalyptus and blackberry flavors mellowed out by undertones of nuts and vanilla.

While you're at it, try some savory prosciutto and some good pate on fresh crusty sourdough.

Haha, perfection.

I like your sort of thinking.

There's a vineyard not far from me that I've been wanting to check out. I think a trip is in store.

Hmmm....I've only had a little wine 2 times and I didn't like it either time. It it an acquired taste or do I just need someone to teach me? I mean it sounds good! And smells too!

Wines I think you need to start with something easy on the pallet, and then work your way into the more complex wines. For beginners, try icewine (expensive, and need to be ice cold), sherry, port (high alcohol, Seppelt Tafford tawny port is very good and cheap) or muscato. These wines are very very sweet (listed in decreasing order of sweetness), almost syrupy. Or if you like lighter taste, try Zinfandel, Riesling, or Beaujolais. Beaujolais in particular is a very gluggable wine (make sure to aerate well, pop cork and leave in ice bucket for an hour or so, or decant).

The wine I fall in love with all the time is called Petit Syrah, or Petit Shiraz (especially Guenoc and Bogle Petit Syrah). It has a very balanced semi-complex taste and it's fairly inexpensive for such good wine.

Also what you're having with the wine affects the taste very heavily. If you're finding that you don't like the taste of a certain wine, try taking a bite of cheese, or a few walnuts and then take a sip.

Ooo thanks! I'll have to print your post and take it with me next time I go to try some wine!

7 Deadly Zins (Michael~David Vineyards in CA)

Soft, supple pepper and licorice-clove notes merge into a sinful marriage of deep, brambly blackberries and lustful cherries. The finish is clean on the palate with hints of rich vanilla, cocoa, and mild tannins.
