Just Saying Hello

Posted by intoreds, Jan 17, 2010.

Hi all, I'm a new member and relatively infantile in my wine experience, but have been drinking for years and am now trying to dig a bit deeper into the culture, the depth and breadth, and the camaraderie that wine and its community has to offer. I can already see there's an amazing group of people here, so I'm very much looking forward to getting to know everybody!

I'd say at the top of my list is cakebread cab... but that's not in the stable of $10..$15 daily bottles I'm striving to find. :) The Louis Jadot Beaujolais and Jekel Pinot Noir have been frequent flyers on my dinner table for a while now. Lots of others I've had more than once but couldn't say they're faves just yet.

Welcome, snooth is a great community with lots of fresh information and provoking commentary, most of my wine knowledge concerns French Wine, but I have been making a serious effort to know more about Italian Wine and also to some extent Spanish Wine.
Cheers

Hello - I'm a newbie on here too. Completely agree with Amour about Concha Y Toro's Carmenere wines, specifically Casillero del Diablo. We discovered it at a local restaurant here...wonderful every day value-priced wine. Apparently, the Carmenere grape was completed wiped out in the Bordeaux region of France and was discovered in Chile in the mid-90's as a mysterious clone to Merlot. I think it's way better than a merlot, though. Cheers!

WOW!
THANKS!
Will do some reading-up!

I also found other experienced tasters on the internet saying how much
they enjoy some of these wines of CHILE.
Not that it really matters...!...like most of us on SNOOTH,
we like what we like and can afford at the time!

It's been a few years since I've had anything from Chile, that Concha Y Toro Terrunyo Carmenere 2005 looks pretty good! Will have to hunt down a bottle to try it out, thanks for the lead.

Excited to be here and meeting everybody, thanks for the guidance and looking forward to discussing more vino selections.
