I don't really like wine actually. I like the Lambrusco a little bit... But that's not the REAL wine is it?

I love wine and good old irish whisky. Single Malt of course. A candle in the dark, nice dark music like Secret South from 16 Horsepower and a glas of whisky. Enjoy.

poor guy. i don't consider wine a "drug". last weekend i opened a sweet 1990 chataeu batailley grand cru classe. bit expensive (80 euros), but worth EVERY cent. That stuff isn't drunk to get drunk. It's just great taste.

Here in the states I think it's silly that smoking pot is considered illegal yet you can buy as many bottles of wine, beer, etcetera as you like and get equally intoxicated. It makes no sense. Nearly any substance can be casually enjoyed, or abused like it's a drug. I can buy cough syrup that will make me trip if I was so inclined. Hell, I can just stay awake a few nights in a row... Free hallucination high.

Googles definition of drug:
--------------------------------------
drug (drŭg)
n.

A substance used in the diagnosis, treatment, or prevention of a disease or as a component of a medication.
Such a substance as recognized or defined by the U.S. Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act.
A chemical substance, such as a narcotic or hallucinogen, that affects the central nervous system, causing changes in behavior and often addiction.
Obsolete. A chemical or dye.
-----------------------------------------------------

Since most wine contains alcohol and alcohol is addictive, affects the central nervous system, and causes changes in behavior then I would consider wine a drug.

However, if you want to be "drug-free" you can always get non-alcoholic wine. :D

i'm also a big wine fan, both white and red. i prefer the drier, less sweet wines of the both, although a nice pinot d'alsace is good in the summer (it's a tad sweet). there are also some good chilean wines that aren't that expensive for a bottle and worth a try. reds are great in the winter for sitting by the fire or before going to a bar.

although, if i drink wine to get drunk i stick with jugs of sangria, it tastes like fruit punch.

Wine is not a drug, but I understand why you say it. There are people that just drink to get drunk, and THAT is not the way it's supposed to be..

I personally allways drink 'ros?'. Is that what it's called in english? Not red, not white, but in between... :oops: Like the color of the smiley 8)

That looks comfy Jeremy.

I enjoy wine but I don't drink it to get trashed. I think drinking huge amounts of wine looks a bit trashy but having a few glasses with dinner is really nice. If I want to get trashed then beer is the go.

i love wine. I like red best but white is also good along with white meat like chicken.
Not that often i drink wine though. I like beer better and cognac/brandy.
But it is really great to share a bottle ith my girl on a evening. Not much of that nowdays since shes pregnant.

i like both dry red and dry white wines. Red i prefer in the colder months and white in the warmer months, although depending on what's being served for meals can alter that practice of association with seasons.

Woow... Château Batailley 1990, sure it must have been great !

The latest great very wine I had was a bottle of Château Gruaud-Larose 1985 (3ème Grand Cru Classé, Saint-Julien).. unbelievable ! Incredible complexity, finesse, well blended tanins and a very pleasant and long mouth !

I'm a big fan of Pinot Noirs.

Wasn't a big fan until I went to Italy. Mainly reds though. So so good!

I used to Drink Olde English because I'm broke, but then i realized that Wine gets me drunker, faster, and for just a little bit more money. Hooray!

Hogtown
28th March 2008, 03:22
but seriously, I'm young and broke.. a fine wine is amazing and you can tell the difference between that and a cheap one. But realistically, I drink to get drunk, and it's perfect. Plus I haven't developed a fine pallet for wine yet.

cristal is overrated imho, you're just paying the name and the bottle...
sure it's really good champagne, but is it worth the extra money compared to normal Roederer, Krug, Dom Perignon or even Veueve Cliquot...

visited a 'wine expo' about two weeks ago, all independent winefarmers from france, so no well known names, but excellent quality!

came home with nine bottles of red wine (3 pomerols), 4 bottles of champagne and a bottle of cognac (XO fine champagne)...

Bobbejaan
8th December 2008, 12:04
I actually don't think cristal is overrated. A bottles of Krug and DomP are just as expensive and if you look at other champagnes there are some way more expensive than cristal. its a lot of money though.

Its just i like a clean 100% chardonnay champagne. And the only top Cuvee champagne is derived soley from the chardonnay grape... is Cristal. Its just my taste.

You should try the Ruinart 100% Chardonnay. Normal priced but excellent tasting

Moet & chandon now thats one overrated bottle of champagne. If i had to choose i'd buy a Veuve everytime.

8th December 2008, 12:11
I accually think cristal is underrated. It get's so much attention for everything exept the taste. It's really good stuff.

unfortunatley I can't pay top dollar for wine anymore. castillio de anna BIB and and the odd bottle of piper heidseck now and then Is about all the wine I drink these days.

Wow, I did not get to finish that post.

So, recently I have had the oppurtunity to try:

2001 Silver Oak (Alexander Valley) Cabernet Sauvignon
1998 Robert Mondavi unfiltered Reserve Cabrenet Sauvignon
2001 Cakebread Cabernet Sauvignon

Like I said, all three of these wines are incredible, albeit pricey. They are bottles I will probably always remember. The Mondavi being the most tanic, but still soft in the mouth. It had an amazing aroma, bouquet of berries an such (prominent in ALL of these wines) but left almost a hint of tobacco or musk that the other two didn't have. It was definitely the most "robust" out of the three, and went incredibly well with a lamb dish I had. That being said, it wasn't overpowering as many other cabs I've had.
The Silver Oak was amazing, far and away the best bouquet of aroma of any wine I've ever had.
Lastly, the Cakebread has a reputation for always being a great bottle, and this was definitely the case. I would highly recommend any of them.

Now on to Pinot Noirs for a couple months, see if I can find a few new favorites.
