    Re: What wine are you drinking? Winter/Spring 2010

    Last night was Early Times BiB bottled in '93. I swear it would give lot B a serious challenge.

    It frequently happens when one drinks substantial amounts of bourbon, or, um, wine.

    Re: What wine are you drinking? Winter/Spring 2010

    For me, it is Stella Maris, by the Northstar winery in Columbia Valley, WA.

    It's mostly Merlot, with a portion of Cabernet Sauvignon mixed-on. I picked it up on clearance at the PA state store for $24 a bottle.

    Velvety texture, rife with black raspberry and plum tasting notes, and a hint of spice in the nose.

    Not as sweet as most CA Merlots-- definitely drier, and lighter. It would be perfect with a rare grilled Filet Mignon.

    My MIL may have the cheapo record. She rips through the Foxhorn Chardonnay 1.5's like water. She doesn't get out much, so I get it for her by the multi-case. Her usual order is 6 cases (6 1.5's/case). Total Wines has had at $4.79/1.5, though they're up slighltly as of late. There goes the inheritance.

    When it comes to wine, I'm a firm believer in one of the informal rules around here regarding whiskey. If you like it, you like it. Whether it's Foxhorn, $3 Chuck or Boone's Farm.

    On a similar note, this afternoon I'm enjoying some Remvi White Retsina from INO. Light & fresh, not too spectacular, but very refreshing. And then there's the pine resin finish. Fun every now and then, but I couldn't drink this on a regular basis.

    recently released 2008 The Prisoner by Orin Swift--a blend from Napa, mostly Zinfandel.

    Spring Mountain Cabernet 2005 just arrived---excellent. they also make a good Sauvignon Blanc.

    Rombauer Cabernet--tried it at a Binny's California tasting. in the $30 range, but worth it.

    The Red Wings should be your hockey team.

    I think the Hawks and Wings are on a collision course in the playoffs.

    Back on topic, wine I'm not drinking is Ripple with a pack of Kool-Aid poured in.
    It killed PigPen.
