Favorite Wines

Recommended Posts

My absolute favorite wine is Honig cabernet. It tastes like butta!!!

 

On the cheaper side I like the yellow tail merlot/cabernet blend. I think I drink wine that is on the more expensive side...Well I used to. I had to give up wine for BL3.

 

I would love to hear mor ideas on affordable wines, although that could get me in trouble :P

My absolute favorite white wine on the planet is Mer Soleil - it is a Chardonnay from CA - it is SO GOOD!!!!!!!!

 

Mer Soleil Chardonnay 2004

 

winemaker's notes:

Initial aromas of the ripe apple/pear/grape combination inherent in Chardonnay quickly evolve into rich scents of mango, pineapple, lemon, butterscotch and subtle smoke. Explosive flavors—tropical fruits and spices with a balancing layer of zesty citrus from the mid-palate on through to the extended finish. Seems to fill every corner of the mouth.

I rarely drink white wine (it's too sweet for me), but my favorite cheap Merlots and Cabernets are Bogle and Smoking Loon. You can't beat the price and I think they are great tasting! And Coppola makes a fantastic wine all around.

 

I'm a big fan of California wines (can you tell smile35.gif). I used to be huge on Australian and South African wines, but before I knew it I was buying mostly all CA wines.

If you want to splurge (although it's not much more) try the Mer Soleil SILVER.

Only certain white wines are sweet, like Rieslings, etc. There are lots and lots and lots of dry white wines (try a Viognier or an oaked Chardonnay) that won't have the super-fruity or floral aromas, just in case you want to try some more whites! I used to only drink reds, but since I started selling wine for a living, I have obviously learned a lot more and been able to find whites that I love.

There are even dry, non-sweet rieslings. Try an Alsace riesling, most of those are on the f=drier side. There is also one called Kuhl Dry that you might like as a "starter" white if you don't like 'em sweet.

I'll drink white wine and I enjoy it... just not as much as reds (especially Merlot). I progressed (not sure that the right word?) from loving pinot noirs, to cabernets, to merlots. I've been stuck on merlot for a long time.

My very favorite is a David Bruce Pinot Noir. I buy cases of it every time my local shop has a special. It's a terrible habit, but someone needs to do it...

I'm not a big white wine person but my two favorite Red wines

 

Simi Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 04,05,06 ( $20.00 a bottle)and any montepulciano italian red wine. ( never over $ 15.00 a bottle).

 

I do have many more but another few good cheap wine is Barefoot Cabernet, Steap Leap Carbernet, Rutherford Hill Carbernet & merlot.

The most outstanding wine I've had in my life was a Barolo that I cannot remember the name of and I've never seen it again sad.gif

 

BV wine is consistently good and inexpensive Beaulieu Vineyard

 

Castello di Monsanto makes a great Chianti. (Chianti & pasta w/red sauce...yum!)

 

I love the Pinot Noir by Kynsi Winery here on the central coast.

 

Can you tell I like red wine? wink.gif

 

 

(And my favorite champagne is Perrier Jouet like Christi mentioned...mmmmm)

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
