Pinot & Shiraz

Dry

White Pinot or red?

@EricTrommater Both. Depends on what I'm pairing it with, or the weather. Generally speaking, I prefer reds.

@VictoriaNotes I prefer the white except with spicier foods I like the reds.

@EricTrommater What about you?

@VictoriaNotes the dryer the better.

Cabernet Sauvignon

Waiter: Can I get you a glass of wine, sir?

Ben: Sure, only make mine vodka.

Autocorrect keeps changing Pinot to pinto so I'm giving up on writing this comment.

Also malbec.

I like a good cabernet sauvangion for red and pinot grigio for white. still learning about wine, but I certainly enjoy a glass or two in the evening every now and then.

For reds, the more tannin the better, please.

For whites, love me some Gewurtz, or anything else that seems to have "minerality" (though that's unscientific nonsense).

One of my greatest pleasures is winemaking with friends. Been doing it since 2001 or so but you have to love the process to love the wine, which can run toward the sweet and vegetal:

And yet when I go out I have more fun with cocktails, not wine.

I don't know much about wine, but I'm partial to dry reds. Merlot is fine. I like Cabernet Sauvignon, too. I can drink sweeter wines, too, but if I want something sweet I'd just as soon drink grape juice.

I became a wine drinker in Germany. Their wines are mostly white and Rieslings, Gewürztraminer's and so on. While stationed in Turkey I loved the Greek and Turkish reds which tended to be sweet. It's hard to find a sweet, non-fortified wine but I did.

I really love anything red. Bitter and dry over anything sweet.

1

Malbec is my new favorite. But, good wine is good wine.

1

I love a peppery Zin or a nice pinot noir. Have also had some great viognier. Love fruity non-fortified ports too.

Lambrusco with Italian

Sauternes for sipping

champagne for New Years Eve Mimosas

You didn't give the choice of red blends, which is most of my consumption. I've found Bolla Merlot is very good. I have found a nice sweet wine that isn't too sweet at the local grocer (here in southeastern Louisiana, alcoholic beverages are sold in grocery stores).

Cab Sav

1

I only use it to cook with, and only with red.

1

All of the above and depends on which food or just drinking for the hell of it.

Ok..I like my wines..I tend to Whites in summer and Reds in winter..also I usually pair wines with dinners..again depending on the season.

I thought I was in a very small minority by buying wine by the grape type, finding out I am almost fashionably wrong.

Here, incidentally, is a fine article debunking yet reaching for the aplogetics of minerality in wine:

"Minerality in Wine: What Does It Mean to You?"
[thedrinksbusiness.com]

"The wines being described as mineral are also generally described as ‘elegant’, ‘lean’, ‘pure’ and ‘acid’. They have a taste as if of licking wet stones and often a chalky texture to match . . . The International Mineralogical Association defines ‘mineral’ as ‘an element or chemical compound that is normally crystalline and that has been formed as a result of geological processes’. So vines take up elements from the soil and this gives wines their distinct taste? Right? Wrong! The mineral elements in wine are tiny; only potassium and calcium even come close to 1,000 parts per million. There’s no question of tasting them. . . .

"As a result, science gives the ‘mineral’ tasting note short shrift. . . . ‘On one side we know that the direct causal transfer of minerals from the soil to the finished wine is nothing we can prove. On the other side we observe varying styles of wines from different soils and geology. . . .' "

Red wine. Not too sweet and not too bitter.
