Great tasting wines

This wine I got from my hairdresser for lending her a book (no other favors, lol)

Fruity, prunes, cherries, blackberries... yum

Re: Great tasting wines

OK, are you guys just trying to be provocative?

How can you have such discerning ears, but undiscerning palates!?!?

Maybe y'all can wash that stuff down with some Riunite on ice. Served from a nice brown paper bag, of course.

.....Perfect for anyone who doesn't actually like real wine.
Me, I'll settle for Hospice d'Beaune Volnay 1956 or a Perrier Joey Rose Brut when I'm feeling extravagant.
But hey, I'm spoiled living in the Tamar River Valley in Tasmania where some of the very best cold climate wines can be had at bargain cellar door prices.
In truth though my favorite tipple is traditional Nth Iraqi Coffee.
Strong black topped with goat's milk yoghurt or whipped cream drizzled with warm honey & hash oil, freshly grated cinnamon &/or cardamon &/or nutmeg ( depending on which tribe's entertaining) .

Wine from a Kagaroo? That just seems wrong! They do make some good microphones from downunder.

My grandmother stayed loaded on Mogan David Wine. It came in a glass jug with a wide mouth lid.

I kept the bottle that was in her fridge when she passed on. They say passed on in East Texas.

Re: Great tasting wines

At Safeway (grocery store) they always have a sale on Coppola's Cabernets or a nice La Crema Chardonnay. That's about as haut as I get anymore.

My most memorable wine was a 1971 Ridge Zin Late Harvest from the Occidental vineyard. (Very late harvest, 18 1/2% alcohol) A huge mo-fo. It was served with Peruvian flake and Thai stick dipped in honey oil. Good times...

I don't keep empty bottles or labels. If I listed all the significant vintages I've enjoyed over the decades you'd turn green with envy. I was chef for some years at an up - market French resturant in Melbourne. The owner's brother was the president of the Champagne Academy in France. So, almost every week we'd receive free of charge air freighted 'sample' cases of European wines. My job first thing each morning was to wander into the cool room, choose two bottles of bubbly, open one for myself and take the other upstairs to the owner and place it on his bedside table. Returning to the kitchen I'd start my working day with 3 dozen oysters or something like an informal little crab& brie omelet. You get the idea.......
We also had a monthly booking when a group of wine importers booked out the entire restaurant. They'd fax us a list of the wines they were drinking and we'd structure a menu to match. Often when they departed, well and truly 'lubricated', they'd leave behind half bottles of the most astonishing stuff. I have fond memories of a Chateau d'Yquem 1942 amongst others - - - so , don't get me started.

I sort of get it! Son #1 is a chef at a local bistro and has brought in a list of pairings for similar clients who have bought the restaurant for the night!! They send in a list of wines they plan to have available, now do your thing. Plus the owner has a relative who is a Calligrapher/Printer so the menus for the evening are topshelf to match!!

Joe Darling, I'm very much a pansy and proud of it. However, I have nothing whatever to do with box's.

I have to agree that Paul Draper makes some fabulous Zin's at Ridge. I was just impressed that, given all of the other party treats that you had, you were cognizant enough to even remember the vino.
