Best red wine 2007

My best red in 2006 was 20 years old.
Tasted during a mini 1986 horizontal at Shelly's steack house with NYC Wine Club Gruaud Larose was nothing short of superb. The wine was fleshy in your mouth and developping fantastic tertiary flavours of underwood, mushrooms, french oak and tobacco with a super long length. Need to be decanted two hours to soften the tannins. A steal at $140 retail price.

if the wine was good you have not paid a big price.

If you are interested in wine making then you need to do a little homework before you get started. Wine making is not

something that you can just plunge into and learn along the way, you need to do some research so that you know that you

are not missing any vital wine making steps or processes. If you do miss these wine making your wine could very well turn

out tasting like anything but wine.

Wine making is a something fun that you can do in your spare time and at the end you will have a glorious result. Wine

making is something that people tend to get hooked on because the very first batch is not usually perfect, it may taste

delicious but it will not be perfect. As you learn about wine making and as you get the wine making experience behind you

your wine will get better and better. You will undoubtedly pick up tips and tricks to help you improve your wine making

capabilities.

Seb,

I am trying to decide whether to name my new wine from South Africa Pinotage Rose or just Rose for the US market. What do you think?

Dark color. Notes of smoke, tobacco, berry. Medium bodied with fine tannins, great moutfeel. Very earthy w/ notes of pepper, leather. Nice long finish.I like to drink wine with my Cuban cigars.As Cuban cigars are not available in US market,I buy my Cigars Online.
