Trying wine May 17, 2007

Posted by truthspew in wine.

I’d always been a beer guy. I can tell you I like an ale better than a stout, or that I like the flavor of hops and so like hoppy beers.

Over the last few months I’ve branched out into wines.

So far I’ve tried:
Merlot (I like it, but it’s not for use with everything.)
Negroamaro-Cabernet (Very good red wine!)
Shiraz (Like it!)
Pinot Grigio (Good with fish)
Pinot Noir (Excellent red wine!)
Two different Rieslings by different vendors. Love Rieslings.

I’m actually starting to learn what goes well with what. Sure, beer goes well with just about anything but with wine you have to be a bit pickier.

But overall I’m enjoying my little tour. For example, I’ve also tried various vintages and brands of many of those wines. There are some vintages of Pinot Grigio that I wouldn’t give to my worst enemy. Then there are some that I would.

And wonder of wonders, the boss makes his own wine. He’s promised me a sampling. I can’t wait.

I am a “box o’ wine” kinda guy. I cannot tell the good from the bad.
