    iambrutus Screw Blue

    I just finished a bottle of Rosemount Estate Merlot 2001 and it was a great bottle of wine. it was very full bodied but it was also incredibly smooth...just wanted to pass that along for anyone that might be a wine drinker as i am.

    DEBuckeye It ain't easy, bein' cheesy.

    iambrutus- if you liked that, here are a few other Merlots in the same general price range that are very good:
    Columbia Crest Grand Estates
    Bogle
    Blackstone
    Concha y Toro, Marques de Casa Concha (from Chile)
    Veramonte (also Chile)

    If you want to spend a little more ($17-25):
    Franciscan (awesome)
    Echelon (can be hard to find)
    Chateau St. Jean
    Ravenswood

    Don't let anyone tell you what you're "supposed" to like, the most important thing is to drink what you like. As long as it doesn't come in a box- please don't drink wine from a box....

    my policy is no boxes, and no screw off tops :biggrin:

    actually if you like white assie wines, they are almost all screw offs now... I'm not much of a white fan unless it is a Reisling... seems funny to pay big bucks and get a screw off, but that is what they are doing "down under"...

    gbear- do you need to take this to the Abe Lincoln Thread?

    While I would refute gbear's assertion that "they are almost all" screw tops are on the way in, in Australia... (I've actually only seen German wines going screw top.... first hand)... He is however on to something in that You're probably going to need to rescind the "no Screw Top" Rule in the near future, as there are quality wines of nearly every description soon to come to a store near you... Natural Cork is going to be much less common going forward (It causes up to 15% spoilage... an amount smaller Wineries can't afford to lose... and contrary to certain myths.. the cork does not affect.. or enhance.. the wine in the aging process...) and for some reason, the synthetic corks are falling out of favor... (there's a reason... but I don't know what it is off the top of my head.)

    I am not a big wine drinker, but I do like an occasional Merlot or Pinot Noir. For those of you more knowledgeable of wine, what Pinor Noirs do you recommend?

    I had a bottle of Strawberry Boones farm last night. It was full bodied with a slight hint of berry added to it's sweet, tart taste.

    If one is feeling quite adventureous they can opt for the ever so potent bottle of mad dog 20/20 Grape. That is the ultimate for a wine drinker who is also conscious of the amount of money in his pocket. :biggrin:

    WTF????? Why is my question funny?

    Because it's funny how much you've changed in the past two years. Two years ago if you'd asked that question, I'd think you were going insane or something.



    I don't know that I've ever seen you drink any wine.

    Couple Pinot's.. though not my forte-- that I like..

    Pepperwood- for about $7. (This might be a wine shop, or grocery store with a large selection type thing, but its pretty available)

    Kenwood does make a nice one for about $15... which is pretty reasonable for a 88 or 89 Spectator Rating Pinot. I think this particular one is labeled as "Russian River Pinot Noir." This one actually suprised me... I think I've had the '02 twice.

    As for bigger $, I don't know, because I would never spend more than 15 bucks on Pinot... Doesn't excite me enough... but these two I liked.
