tidbits from the cellar

Wine is a journey. Most people start with a very light white, like a pinot grigio or Sauv blanc, and progress to heavier whites like chardonnay. The next step is lighter reds and eventually progressing to the big daddies, being bordeaux, big california cabs, or even an Italian Super Tuscan. Everyone's wine journey will be different. Some drinkers only go as far as the "lighter" whites. Others will go all the way to the big daddy wines. Wherever you are on your journey is a celebration! As I always say "drink what you like and like what you drink"! As promised, the best red wines for beginners. A great start is a shiraz/syrah. A syrah is "jammy" meaning it's full tasting with some sweetness. Another good choice is a pinot noir. A pinot is lighter and a great wine to blend with a wide variety of foods. Remember, Burgundies are Pinot Noir grapes! And last but not least Carmenere. Carmenere is the Grandpa to Cabernet. There are great Carmenere coming out of Chile at a great price. A toast to your wine journey! Take a sip...Suzie
