Red wine

What's your red wine of choice? I'm pretty clueless and just go for whatever seems like it's supposed to be good.

      I'm on the opposite end, I like the driest reds. Merlot, pinot noir, cabernet sauvignon. I will chill the wine and fill the glass with ice. Pour the wine over and enjoy.

    Really depends on what you use it for. If it's during a meal, there's specific wines for each type of food and it's not just being a snob, it makes a really difference.

    As for drinking it alone, I would say I like some Cotes du Rhône like Brouilly or Chenas.

      Pairing wine and your meal is really something important in gastronomy. I remember the first time I went to a Michelin two stars restaurant, my cousin worked there and offered me a "discovery menu" with about 12 different (small portion) courses and he assigned a sommelier girl to give the appropriate wine for each of those courses. I learned 3 things:
      > 12 glass of wine is a lot even for me
      > I violently wanted to have sex with the sommelier girl, a tiny half asian chick, proper and cute.
      > wine taste SO MUCH BETTER when you eat the appropriate food with it. And the food itself too. It's unbelievable.

      Of course they were expensive wine and Michelin-level food, so it hells but since then I've tried to learn more about eunology.

        ? It's basic french wine

        They are pretty much either from Côtes du Rhône, from Bordeaux or from Vallée de la Loire. (There is other places but those are the big 3). Now inside those categories there is multiple types of cepages used (varieties) and the specific blend is often named after the locality its made. Like Beaujolais or Brouilly in this case.

              They're separate AOCs, are you even European?

                I am. Beaujolais is in the Rhône region, it's true they are separate AOCs but the nuance is maybe a bit much for burgers and, more to the point, everytime you say Beaujolais to an american, he's thinking Beaujolais nouveau.

    There are tons of perfectly fine day-to-day wines in the $10-15 range.
    To wit:
    Edmundo
    J.Lohr
    Columbia Crest
    Mina Mesa
    Carson Ridge
    Radius
    Barrelhouse
    BV

    And many more. Spending more than this as you start to drink wine is a bit foolish, I think.

        Drinkable? $20+.

          As long as we're talking about the basics (no Grand Cru or similar) most can be had for less than $20. I'd guess the average would be about 12-15.

          Hmm so pretty much double the prices in France

            Varies by state but tariffs and import duties raise the price by a not insignificant amount. Availability and quality is also all over the place. And it has the Bordeaux meme tax. Everyone other than ouiabeaux wine snobs tend to go for other reds, the bottle price makes it not super worth it unless it's a good vintage from a good winery.

    Franzia boxed wine, the patrician (alcoholic) choice

    I'm whiskyfag and got this for a penny from a promotion at a big box store. it's the first wine I've ever had that i could drink a couple times a week. about to finish it off in a beef stew. first pour was little tannic and bitter, but after a day or two with air it much improved. not complex by any means, but it might get me to try something more expensive. I've heard Argentine Malbec's are good, but I dont know winery's to look for.

    I've tasted 70+ wines this year by going to tastings and reds from Italy have been consistently superb. My two very favorites were from islands specifically. Sicily and Sardinia. More recently I've had two good pinot noirs, one from Argentina and one from France.

    Cabernet Franc is my favorite varietal, and severely underrated in my opinion. Pic related is a decent budget option

    i go for managers pick at grocery outlet. idk if thats a good idea or bad idea.

    also why are some wines $5.99 but normally priced at 29.99 at gross out? can i assume those are a bad batch?

    its harvest time so grocery outlet is LOADED with old stock wine

    any idea on this shit?

      Probably has something to do with Gewurztraminer and Petit Verdot not being popular varietals.

    Nebbiolo, Sangiovese, Carbernet Sauvignon (Bordeaux, not states since they tend to be too sweet for my taste) are the grapes i typically go for.
    big fan in general of the Piedmond region and Tuscany. getting more and more into Bordeaux
    also Rioja and Pinot Noir from Burgundy if i want something a little lighter.

      A good start, but you won't get creative or really great parings.
