    Is malbec really lighter than merlot? I thought merlot was easy to drink and malbec was supposed to be robust?

      how you grow, harvest, press, ferment, filter, fine, and age the wine has at least as much if not more of an impact than the actual grape, but generally speaking 'bec sold as such (as opposed to cahors or as a blending grape) is favored by producers catering to tastelets who want the most overweight "sucker punch me with vulgarity" wine humanly possible, it's argentina competing with australia to see who can be the most boorish lout at the table

        What would you recommend for someone who likes a big heavy wine but would like to try something more "sophisticated"? Also is higher alc % better?

          I'm just being a twat because it's Culinaly, trying to be "sophisticated" is the absolute worst thing you can be doing if you want to enjoy yourself, you'll just waste money and look foolish. if you end up drinking wine often, in the long run you'll gravitate towards wines considered "sophisticated" because your palate will adjust to the flavors of various wines. a lot of cheaper mass market wines are specifically aimed at people who don't drink a lot of wine and have different preferences, you should drink those now because you'll enjoy them now and you won't enjoy them later. mollydooker, meiomi, michael david stuff, etc. if you want to compare to what snobs consider "sophisticated" try some northern rhone wines.

          alcohol % and sugar levels and all those things cannot be looked at in the absence of other traits because your perception of high or low alcohol (or any other single item) will be influenced by acidity and sugar and temperature and so on, when people say it's "too _____" they usually just mean relative to everything else.

            I dont mean sophisticated as in showing off. I mean something perhaps more subtle and having more nuances. I dont know if what im saying make any sense. If argentina and austrlia wine is loud then what countries are more "quiet"? Should i look at european wine? What about chile? Is more expensive always = better? What would be the sweet spot $ wise to get a good wine but not having to spend too much?

              chile has a reputation of being somewhat more restrained, yes. the stereotype with europe is it's lower alcohol and lower sugar levels and stuff but that's just sportsball rivalry but for wine, it's a wild generalization that is only sometimes true for certain kinds of wine.

              sweet spot depends entirely on where you live and what you like to drink but let's just pick syrah as an example, in murica US$25+ gets you something ok, and past $50 is getting into snob/flex territory

                they're more like wildcards in racial hierarchy arguments much like east asians and israelites. when it's convenient for the person arguing, they're bad and should be exterminated. also when it's convenient, they're good and proof that white people can't be racist or that racism is good or whatever. it's more about winning the argument than about being consistent

                His point still stands. All wine tastes like shit or wood unless you add fruit to it.

                I bet the grapes they used are really sour too

    That depends what are you pairing it with and what kind of a taste you like. Best advice I can give you is to try out different wines and see what you enjoy the most.
    Easy way to do that is search an area/country for the type of grapes that thrives there and pick a wine made from it. Then check what type of meal it pairs well and cook that stuff up.

    Any of you guys ever had a dry riesling? I remember watching a wine doc years ago where all these sommeliers they were following started nutting over dry rieslings and how only they seem to know about it or ask for it, and I have never seen one in a store, not even at my local BevMo

      I don't see it on this chart but I really like Gruner Veltliners, very bright and citrus-y.

      Yes, a local winery near me makes one, I really like it.

      the circlejerk over riesling in general (which started with but is no longer limited to dry) is tiresome and reddit-tier, but it has had a positive effect much like with the skin contact meme (just say "orange wine" and watch the reactionaries start foaming at the mouth). more choices is always good. is, not are. the "having" is silent.

      you should definitely give some a try, I'm surprised you haven't seen any, you can even find it on restaurant menus in shit holes like chicago and minneapolis now, the kinds of places where it used to be "muh craft beer" or nothing. I've actually been in wine shops where there's no non-dry riesling. that's taking it too far but I guess the "sweet is good" contrarianism hasn't caught on everywhere.

    Cabernet Sauvignon is the best. If you're ever at a dinner with a bunch of bigwig business execs and you're the new guy, they'll ask you to pick the wine for the table as a test. Always pick the cabernet sauvignon because it goes with almost everything and you don't know what everyone ordered.

      Pinot noir is a much better "goes with everything" wine in that situation, it's still a red and some of them are very complex and strong. Cabernets are almost exclusively reserved for red meat.

        I realize these threads are just for shitposting but since I have the autism I have an overwhelming compulsion to correct you both and say that champagne is the most "goes with everything" wine

          Autist anon even if that were true you're not going to order champagne at a "casual" dinner with business execs. They'll see you as a tryhard loser who doesn't know anything if you order that.

          While true, Cab Sauv is more popular and business execs love steak so it's the better choice overall
