Hello people,

I am a veteran of the Les Amis Du Vin, Boston chapter, a former Package store manager and an overall enthusiastic Zinfandel oenophile.

L'Chaim,

Cheers Kevin. Welcome to Snooth!

Do you have a favorite Zin? Or is that like picking a favorite child?

Never met a Zin I didn't like but Ridge Zins are great when I have money burning a hole in my pocket and Seghesio makes some great Zins' for a bit less. but under $10 a bottle Zins are good and there are many.

How do you find Primitivos? And are there any other reds/whites/roses you particularly enjoy?

I've only had one Primitivous. I had a .Castello Monaci Primitivo Piluna . It had nice fruit as I remember and was pretty earthy.

I like Californian Cab, Zins and I am a big fan of Italian wines. (All Red)

I'm definitely a Ridge fan -- had a great chance to visit them last time I was out west.

So what Italians? Barolos, Barbarescos, other nebbiolos? Chiantis, Super Tuscans, other sangioveses (and Bordeaux varietals)? Further south (negroamaro, etc.)?

Just saw that the Seghesio Zinfandel Sonoma County 2007 got '10th best' wine in the world for 2008, from among the nearly 20,000 wines that Wine Spectator reviewed:

Italians....Again when the cash just won't fit in my wallet, or pocket anymore ...and it's gets hard to walk or even sit down you will find me with an Amarone. I like Sangioveses and good Chianti's ob rare occasion.

Another Ridge fan here - not just their Zin, but all of their wines...

Aloha Everyone out There,

I used to be a "wine enthusiast" and am beginning anew...looking for local contact for the Hawaii chapter of the "Les Amis du Vin"... any leads?   

Mahalo,

Silverstein

Wow, another thread resurrected from the archives.  This one pre-dates my joining Snooth.  So, all these comments were new to me.  Everybody knows that I won't argue with Sellitman's preference for Ridge Zinfandels.

You know, though, I cannot believe that no comment was made about the topic.  I know I'm an old guy, but, sheesh, this is in the Hall of Fame:

Wonderful WINO

Son of Wonderful WINO.

Silver, sorry to intercept your query.  We have had some participants from Hawaii over the past year, but I can't say that I've seen any of them lately.  I might suggest that you start up a new conversation.  Don't give it a Topic Title like "Hello Snooth," call it something like "Looking for Fellow Oenophiles in Honolulu."
