Hi EMARK & Gregory, thanks for your replies. New to Snooth so it took me few visits to realize you replied :)

I am a aspiring to become a sommelier one day so I am here more to learn than to share knowledge at this stage. For the first time I went to shop for more inspiring wines.

Let me know if I made a good selection.

I just opened the Spezieri Toscana Cols'orcia 2006. It's very oaky. 

The rest of list includes Lambrusco Medicic Ermete 2011.

Marques' deCaceres Rioja Reserva 2005, and

Louis Jadot Pinot Noir 2007.

How did I do?

Is drinking Toscana Col D'orcia 2006. Oaky, somewhat smokey, dry, mild-bolded.

Have a look through some of the reviews made by some of the people who responded to your announcement that you've joined the community; this may provide you with a few wines to try plus the added bonus of being able to compare notes.

Experiment and enjoy.

Interesting list with some varied choices. I think you did a great job on getting out of your comfort zone, assuming you have one!

THanks Gregory. It's a great compliment coming from an avid wine professional like yourself. 

I don't know that I have a "comfort zone" when it comes to food and wine. I consider myself a foodie, and would try everything (maybe other than insects-botes), so is with wine. I am happy to try wines that are of better quality and looking forward to learn more about different grapes, different regions and all that entails.

I got that selection bc I I like Pinot Noir (my favorite red) and I think, with my limited knowledge,  Louis Jadot is a good winery/brand.

Chose Lambrusco bc I read here and in WIne Spectator   that it is the "new" wine to try. What I am confused about is that one of the Chefs in WS said she offers it with many Italian entrees, but the wine-seller said it is a dessert wine. Which one is it? For some reason, I trust the chef better, but will be happy to hear your professional opinion.

Chose Rioja reserve bc I like the Spanish wines and the Toscana wine... who knows why but it came first to my hands, so I guess it chose me :)

So what say you?

I am drinking Louis Jadot Pinot Noir 2007. It is avery smooth Pinot Noir, light on the tongue, leaves a flavor for more. 

This is so much fun,talking wines with pros.

Glad to be a part of the group!

As good a reason as any.
