    Re: What wine are you drinking? Fall/Winter 2012

    We don't stand much on drinking a particular wine with a certain dish. Last night for Thanksgiving it was a 2009 Crios Malbec for the red and a 2010 Marco Felluga Pinot Grigio Mongris for the white. And of course the Malamado for after dinner.

    Nobody seemed much interested in bourbon, or other spirits for that matter, sticking mostly to beer, wine and assorted aperitifs. So I may have to sample the Jefferson Ocean on my own or wait for another opportunity to break it out.
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    Just opened a bottle of 2009 Ètim Negre. According to the label it is from Falset in Spain, near Barcelona. It's a blend of 60% Grenache, 30% Carignan and 10% Syrah aged in oak for 6 months. I paid $12 for it and to be honest it's pretty good if a little light for my taste.

    How is that Educated Guess? In great vintages, it tends to be a killer QPR

    Had some Bottex Bugey-Cerdon with coq au vin. It's a sparkling Gamay, has a whiff of residual sugar, and was perfect with the dish.

    Just polished off a bottle of Pinot Blanc from Black Star Farms last night. Surprisingly good. The 2011 vintage in Northern and Western Michigan is turning out to be as fantastic as expected. If you see anything from the Old Mission, Leelenau or Lake Michigan Shore AVAs with 2011 on the label, buy it.

    Meijer carries quite a few MI wines so I will be on the lookout.

    I love the Ménage à Trois Red as a value wine.

    It is fantastic for the price, whenever my wife and I find it we generally buy all we can..
