ok, i'm sorry, this stuff is absolutely VILE. Hell, I'd rather drink Sutter Home than yellow tail. the only time i go out of my for australian wine is for shiraz.

As I stated in a previous booze thread, I used to work in a pretty nice liquor store. We did weekly wine tasting, and the distributors would let us sample as well. I used to help pick wine and all that jazz, as well as handle the tastings themselves. It's kind of fun seeing people pretend they know about wine when it's obvious they have no clue what they're tasting. They just rephrase whatever you tell them about it after they taste it. I wouldn't call myself an connoisseur , but I would go as far as to say I'm competent.

My fav is french wine, particularly chateau neuf du pape. I also enjoy bordeaux, white burgandies (particularly chablis) and champagne as well. Only italian wine i've had that I've actually been impressed with is amarone, though I certainly enjoy the occasional chianti.

I think california wines are overrated, but there is still some damn good stuff there. I think they're more accessible than a lot of the euro wines and thats what makes them so popular. I'll echo Ollie's sentiments for Oregon Pinot, excellent stuff (all mine is gone now )

I have some eiswein I've been saving for a rainy day, still have never tried it before.

can't say that i have. typically, local US wines (meaning virtually everything outside of oregon and california) rarely go too far out of state.

I think that site will tell you anything except what the wine tastes like. If they have any descriptions or listings of grapes, they're well hidden. I noticed a lot of german references, do they do sweet deserty wines?

They do dry bitter wines as well as Super sweet dessert wines.
They have a sweetness scale on every bottle..
1 to `10 scale... 1 being dry and 10 being dessert.
I personally like about a 6... an 8 if it's chilly out.

I loves me some Australian red wine, mainly cause I live here. I don't mind yellow tail but we really do some great shiraz .

Whats funny is when my sis and I were holidaying in Bordeaux during Christmas a few years ago we were looking forward to drowning our selves with French wine but our hosts only had Australian made wine cause they liked the stuff so damn much and they weren't wrong. hehehe

I did particularly enjoy a glass of vin chaud (spiced red wine served warm) every morning with my breakfast while in Paris. It was a perfect start to a wintry day.
