Had this at a gem in coral gables about two weeks ago. Anacapri on Ponce. Food was delicious too.

I'll be celebrating Robbie Burns day on Saturday by attending a Scotch and Haggis party, featuring over 60 varieties of scotch.
I'm hoping to make it through the higher end single malts, 18 years or older, before I revert to the younger varieties.

Doing my usual Saturday evening thing cooking dinner. Fun food is my Saturday thing and I like to listen to Rock music (Deep Purple tonight) and drink aged red wine while I do it.
Homemade Pizza tonight with a 10yo Coonawarra Shiraz. Sublime.

Wow...you guys have been keeping this going. :-) I tried a couple kinds a few weeks ago that I havent posted. Ok, I tried a few more too that didn't remember to take a picture of so I'll find them online & post them. LOL

The 1st one is called OPEN. A bit too sweet but overall was ok. Perhaps if I have it again might add a bit of ginger-ale to make it a spritzer. Cheap wine so I wasn't expecting anything grand from it.


.

Bet you're all going to be jealous as hell to know what we have homegrown in Ontario!

THIS...



.


I didnt taste it personally but my brother said it was pretty good.

Want a fantastic $12 Cab? The 2012 Kirkland (Costco brand) Napa Cabernet is excellent. We are going to pick up 2 cases. Hard to find anything this good at even twice the price IMHO.

I think you could drink the whole case and bring it back for a refund

I've tried it maybe 4 years ago, wasn't bad at all

I was pleasantly surprised to know Mexico had such a diverse quality of wine available. Gerardo has enlightened me once again! France and California are not the only fish in the sea; we just need to open our eyes and be willing to go outside our comfort zones. I just discovered my own area, New Jersey, has some wines that have even outshined Nappa Valley in recent tastings.

There are many great wines out there, I admit that many years ago I was reluctant to consider mesican wine...then I tried it an started doing research....all those awards, variety, flavors. I was wrong; Valle de Guadalupe makes amazing products. As you say, we hav to break our own barriers and go out of our comfort zones.

Happy drinking!

They had a case of Napa Corison '97 Cabernet a while back. Scooped the lot up and it's fantastic. They had a Sommelier that happened to be there at the time, the look on his face when I said all take them all was funny

Was at the NY release party for the 2012 Quintessa a few weeks ago. If you're a fan, '12 was a spectacular year!

Yep, 2012 was excellent for Napa.

“Out of 1,306 tests only 83 came back,” he said. “We know that the vast majority of the wine business is safe. If you’re spending $20 on a bottle of wine you’re not going to have concerns most likely.”
I think most will be fine

Had a bottle of Machete from Orin Swift last night. Really good Napa blend. Our other favorite from OS is Mercury Head.

I like this one because isn't so heavy you have to have it with a meal. Reasonably priced as well.

Have you tried Menageatrois Midnight? ... Same price, just a little darker.

Just finished this tonight! Great full body flavour and a half decent price, by Canadian standards.
