No Whining Wine

Recommended Posts

I think you must have missed school when they taught Oregon, Washington, Burgundy, South Africa,…

What? Sorry, don't follow. "No wimpy wines" was part of a Ravenswood ad campaign years ago.

Too late.  You have already labeled yourself as a snob.

Ha! Never too late for a good wine.

I like reds more than earlier in life, plus they don't have to be chilled.

 

My younger son gave me some Michael David Petite Petit at the end of his wedding weekend. I found it very enjoyable and far better than the low price would lead you to believe. My salayr doesn't allow for expensive wines, although I have been know to enough some.

An El Dorado hometown family has a Cali winery, Presqu'ile. I like them all.

I feel for you Emile,  That will be just a tad uncomfortable inside, I'm sure.  On days such as these, it is a good idea to have a nice little Class D or a T-amp handy.   They put out almost zero heat, so won't add to the ambient temperature, while still being able to make your speakers sing, if one is in the mood.

 That wine is a steal, especially if you like big reds like Petite Sirah. The bad news is that I only have 3 bottles left.

Here are the grapes from my backyard vineyard ( 200 vines) at the crush last month.

I think I can still get some for about $13.50 here at Costco. 😁

California chardonnays suck.  Go Burgundy or go home.

For the most part I would agree with you. There are some California Chardonnays that are made in more of the French style and they can be quite good. Not all California Chardonnays tast like Rombauer - otherwise known as Cougar Crack - thank goodness!

@jimjimbo ... found some wine for you :D 

Image result for university of michigan wine

Wow, absolutely cool.  It is produced by Tabor Hill, which is only about 30 minutes from me (and they have a great restaurant by the way).  Beautiful stop on the Michigan Wine Trail.

 

Thank you for this!
