Wine Review Monday
The last of "Auld Lang Syne" has been sung and we are now ready to begin our new year and conquer our new resolutions.
Well I have mentioned I don't make resolutions but I do like to try new things and new adventures. So in my quest to try new things I'm hoping I can inspire you to be curious enough to do the same and try a new wine.
Many wine drinkers like just one style of wine and never want to try a new wine. There is definitely nothing wrong with that.
It's only that they could be missing out on finding something new. And who doesn't like something new :) ?
With that said, I have listed some information to help you decide what kind of wine you might like to try.
If you drink Whole Milk -- Try a richer, full-bodied Chardonnay from California.
If you drink Skim Milk -- You might like a lighter style white wine. Try Chablis or Chenin Blanc.
If you like Grapefruit Juice -- You probably enjoy the high acidity in this citrus juice. You might try a Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc. These varieties may also have citrus flavors of grapefruit.
If you like Orange Juice -- Fruity and ripe flavors of the oranges are what you might enjoy. Try a Viogner.
If you like spicy black pepper flavors -- Try a red wine like Syrah from France or even a Shiraz from Australia. They have hints of pepper and spice.
If you like cherries, blackberries and/or raspberries -- You probably enjoy berries and fresh fruit. Try red zinfandel from California or maybe a Tempranillo from Spain which has red fruit and cherry flavors.
So try something new next time you are shopping for wine and let us know what your findings are.
