    i hope you didn't have that beaujolais nouveau lying around for a while as the season to drink it is usually late november-january... it's meant to be drunk rather soon after purchase since the flavor often declines with time. so says my french mother-in-law.
    then again, it's two buck chuck...

    I just read about that.

    Someone compared drinking Beaujolais Nouveau to eating cookie dough, but WTF?, I like it, as a night cap anyway.

    Wine snobs tend to look down on Beaujolais Nouveau, but they are idiots. BN is a fun wine, especially on he day that it's released.

    I've just started drinking wine more frequently with the girlfriend. She's into Syrah/Shiraz so I've been experimenting with them along with her. I don't mind them at all but they're a totally new varietal to me. My usual everyday/everything wine was Merlot. I used to love the late 90's Chateau Ste. Michele and Stag's Leap vinyards.
    Just picked up some bottles, I stayed under $20 with some getting discounted with the BevMo card.
    -Beaulieu Vinyard Syrah 2005, Napa Valley
    -Chateau Ste. Michelle Syrah 2003, Columbia Valley
    -Concannon Petite Syrah 2005, Central Coast
    -Hidden Cellars Petite Syrah 2005, Mendocino County
    -Robert Hall Syrah 2005, Paso Robles
    -Sebeka Shiraz 2006, Western Cape, S. Africa

    Heads up, winies- it's two for one time at BEVMO! I scored about $300 worth of good stuff this past weekend and that's just a start.

    Presently I am sipping a lovely 2005 Renwood Grandmere Zin. Normally $35 a bottle at store level purchase. 2 for 1? Yea, I can swing that- yum! Coffee on the nose with thick plum and complex fruit on the tongue. A smooth back end finish with no lingering bitterness. Let it breathe for a minute or two to take care of the 15% alcohol content that'll smack you around later.

    Also, out of all my purchases I have to champion a little Italian white that should not be as good as it is for about $16.99 (second bottle free)- Terre Dei Sicani, FIANO. Fecking delicious and a perfect, crisp, refreshing fruit flavored number for a warm summer evening. GET IT!

    I decided that I want to get into wine, as I am big on lots of the American Wild Ales which tend to be aged in wine barrels, and was recommended the Fat Cat from a good buddy of mine. We picked up the Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.

    Awesome. I would definitely go to a local wine store, give them a little info on your palate, beer-wise, and they can recommend more wines for you to try. You are in IE, correct? I would try Pacific Wine Merchants in Upland, I believe they do daily tastings as well. You can also try Wine Club in Santa Ana.

    Thanks for the info! Yes, I am in the 909.

    There is a killer wine tasting room which has live music in the new west development of the Claremont Village that appeared to be pretty happenin' on Friday night. We are thinking of dropping by soon, following a dinner at a highly rated Italian restaurant next door.
