Introduce Yourself

Snooth User: LoveMuscadine

Hello Snooth!

Posted by LoveMuscadine, Mar 5, 2013.

My wife (of approx.6 months) and I have only recently been introduced to wine drinking. We are completely out of our element when it comes to buying or even conversing about wine, hence, I am attempting to become more knowledgable by joining Smooth. I am hopeful that I can learn from you as I am hopeful you will be willing to teach me. Please be patient with me/us as we are beginners. As a reference, I will tell you that my wife is a fan already of a New York wine "Sweet Walter", a sweet red. As for myself, I find it to be nice, but a tad too sweet. She also has taken a liking to a local (Mississippi) muscadine wine from Old South winery in Natchez MS. She likes "Sweet Magnolia" a sweet white, whereas I prefer "Sweet Noble" a sweet red muscadine wine from the same winery. Thank You in advance for your guidance and hospitality.

I see already that I should put DOWN my glass and pick UP my glassES when using the computer after work, as I mistakingly read the title as Smooth instead of Snooth. My apologies.

Welcome.

You mention that you and your wife like muscadine.  I'm going to poll other Snoothers.  Isn't muscadine commonly grown in North Carolina?  I'd ask some of my NASCAR buddied, but I'd really be surprised if they knew.

i have no familiarity with any of the wines you mentioned.  It is interesting, though.  Do you like to drink these wines by themselves, or do you pair them with your meals?  Have you tried, and do you like dry wines?

Emark, for now, we find ourselves enjoying the wines alone. 

Tho I'm not afraid to have these with a meal, 

we haven't made it a priority to try to pair them with food. 

I recently tried a Pinot Noir, that I found quite bland and empty. 

I do not know if that qualifies for a dry tho.

Amour, I had Barefoot Pinot Noir. I also tried Barefoot Sweet Red, (It was not sweet to me). So, one would think that Barefoot may not be a brand that I should purchase, since I've tried a few.  Amazingly enough, I purchased their Moscato and found it to be ...... let's say, passable. I prefer a little more sweet, but it wasn't bad. Reminded me of cranberry juice. My favorite still is "Sweet Noble" from Old South Winery in Natchez, MS.
