    What wine are you drinking? Spring 2012

    I did a search and didn't see a current wine thread. So here we go! What wine are you drinking?

    Tonight for me, as a change from bourbon, I'm drinking a 2008 bottle of Maison Louis Latour Domaine de Valmoissine Pinot Noir. Nothing fancy and it was on clearance at my local store. That's the main reason I bought it as I'm not a huge pinot fan. It's ok, kind of one dimensional IMHO. I really prefer big, bold cabernets.

    Had a little 2006 Pride Cabernet Franc with friends last night. Now I'm sipping on 1997 Salon Le Mesnil while I finish up some work at the office.

    Last bottles were The Hattrick, a Napa Blend (Cab Sauvignon, Merlot, Cab Franc) from Miner (with international hockey star Igol Larionov) and Maple Lane 2008, another Napa Cab. The ML was great; unfortunately it's sold out and we only bought 2 bottles.

    Just bought another bottle of Cakebread Dancing Bear Ranch, another Napa blend we like. To keep the other 600+ bottles company in the basement. Like we needed it.

    thanks for the tip. registered. interesting concept, selling one wine at a time.

    opened a half bottle of Rubicon Estate 2006 Cask Cabernet, a consistently good Napa Cab. Very smooth, little tannins.


    Originally known as Inglenook when established by Gustave Niebaum in 1879, Francis Ford Coppola bought it in 1975 and it became Niebaum-Coppola. It was renamed Rubicon Estate in 2006, but in 2011, FFC bought back the Inglenook name and it's now known as Inglenook again.

    I don't drink much wine, but my wife loves it..... Since trying it in Hawaii, she's become a give fan of Callifornian White Zinfandel. Until this year we've never been able to find one on the Aussie market, but it looks like the Gallo Family Vinyard variety is now permanently available.
    Otherwise, she's working her way through the enormous range of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc's that are available here.

    There are some GREAT New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc's out there! I bet you're able to get the best of them being so close.

    We get a very large selection here, and are quite spoilt if NZ wines are to your taste.... but it's nothing compared to what we get when we visit the South Island of NZ.. The stuff there is amazing!
