    I got some new wines in this week for our summer list.

    Sabatucci Pinot Grigio - Veneto, Italy

    Wisteria Chardonnay - CA

    Bodega Uno Malbec - Mendoza, Argentina

    Glory Days Zinfandel - Lodi, CA

    Anciano Reserva - Valdepenas, Spain

    Blau Uber Mellow - Germany

    The tasting session was a great way to end the week yesterday. I am more of a red drinker so I really enjoyed the Reserva and the Malbec. Anyone here try andy of these? Some feedback would be nice. Discuss

    Putting it right out there that I don't know much about wines at all, but I do like red wines.

    The only wine I really know is Malbec, and I like that.

    I'm afraid I have not tried any of those.

    I see the Reserva is imported by the Well Oiled Wine Co., they import a lot of
    Spanish and Australian wines. They have some good lower priced wines.

    I'll look at for the Malbec too.

    BTW, my brother (who is a big wine guy) was telling me that the Wall Street Journal has a wine club, and they do specials every month. I guess the special this month is 15 bottles of good wine for 70 bucks. Thought I'd let you wine aficionados know...

    Thanks, but they don't ship to my state.

    I couldn't find that particular one, but it seems hard to believe. Like a hot hooker for ten bucks.

    Same goes here, I need the expert advice of the connoisseurs out there so I have a feel of what we have to offer.

    BTW - the Blau is exremely popular with the ladies and relatively cheap $12 a bottle, I think.

    Since this thread has come back to life, I'll throw out a recommendation.

    I do not like fruit forward reds, I drink a lot of Bordeaux. But this Spanish Granache with strong fruit works because it is balanced well with spice and is actually a little dry in the aftertaste. Much better than slightly cheaper spanish
    grenaches which I find too juicy. I serve this at parties (even though it's about $16) and pretty much everyone enjoys it. If you like Spanish Tempranillo or California Zinfandel you'll probably like this.

    Absolutely pour in a decanter for an hour.

    Price Range: $65-75 a bottle, hard to find. 2005 is around $65
    Notes: When we opened this bottle, the smell of green peppers dominated the first impressions. As the bottle sat open for 20 minutes, the flavors settled into a lovely chocolate mole with a subtle grassiness. Throughout the evening the ripe cherries teased the nose. Also notable was were the spiciness of white pepper down the middle of the tongue and a light chalkiness and the sides of the mouth.

    This bottle is apparently difficult to find and is not even available on the Rubicon website, but the 2005 shows similar qualities, so may be a worthy substitute--I'll need to go back and see!

    Do I have to leave the bottle opened for 20 minutes before I notice those awesome fragrances on a $10 wine?

    Whilst living in Partinico, I was routinely offered grappa, and just absolutely could not drink the stuff. It stunk, because all the oldtimers were enjoying it, and i wanted to fit in, but could barely manage to find a way to swallow it.

    As for my uncles homemade vino......all good.

    Do you like the stuff?

    Depends. Some of the homemade stuff is real rotgut unless the folks know what they're doing. The professionally distilled variety is considerably smoother and I can enjoy either straight or in espresso. I brought back some marc (another type of eau de vie) from the Savoie when I studied there which made grappa seem like water. It was insane.

    As I've mentioned, my Dad and Great Uncle would make wine and grappa back in the 60s and early 70s. I can still remember the cherries picked off our tree having been steeped in their grappa (and sugar syrup, I think) for a few months. It seems strange in these times, but we were allowed to have the cherries and could definitely get a "jolt" off them.

    Amarone's if you like bold tasting wines, Super Tuscan's are also good. Cesari Amarone, about $50/bottle or the Riserva at about $70.00 are very good. If you live in the NYC area, Stu what's it name up route 87 in Yonkers is a good place to buy.
