Mystery Matchup

Which bottle would you drink first?

Last week I tested the price of air. This week, I have decided to simply ask 'which one would you choose?' For this week's poll, I am asking you to decide which bottle to taste based on a generic description.

Taking last week's poll one step further, I am not going to provide any information or any other detailed wine info. Instead, I am asking that you choose which one is your favorite based on generic descriptions by voting for your choice in the poll located at the top of this page. The winning wine will be announced, tasted and featured in a review comparing your pick and whether the price makes a real difference in my tasting experience.


Facebook Profile

Be sure to follow me on Twitter or Facebook Wednesday night @ 6:30m pm ET for my tweets as I open and taste the wine that you have picked. This is your chance to ask me questions or just get a sneak peak at my review. The more the merrier, so tell all of your wine loving friends to stop by, vote, and join the party. In the meantime, take a minute to mark your calendar with next week�s tasting (Wednesday @ 6:30pm ET) and then prepare yourself for the fun by checking out the previous winners.

Cheers!

Is there anything better than the Russian River Valley for wine?

The Wine Whore said...

Both are great choices! I am still hoping to find that great tasting bottle of Chard for less than $10 and you really can't beat the Russian River Valley for wine!

Cheers!

The less expensive wines are always best to hear about. Normally I only drink 1st growth Bordeaux and Grand Cru Burgundy... yea right.

Personally, I would probably open the petite syrah and the red blend. RRV petite syrah is often the most expressive of the variety and has complexity not usually found from the warmer climates.

There are a plethora of great deals out there right now. I spoke to a bunch of winemakers last weekend and they are discounting!!!! Great news for us.

On a side note:

"Pinot Days" was held last week and I can say that the 2007 California pinot vintage rocks. Look for wines from the Russian River, Santa Rita Hills, Santa Maria, and if you like acidity, Anderson Valley and the Mendocino coast.

2006 has some great wines but is more inconsistent in my opinion.

This may be the best time to stock up!

Namaste'

The RRV Petite Sirah looks very promising... I don't think I have had a wine from this area that was disappointing! :)

Thank you for the update on "Pinot Days"... Looking forward to trying more of the 2007 vintage to see if it lives up to the hype!

Cheers!

Isn't like 90 degrees down there today? You gotta go with the Rose!

The Wine Whore said...

Good point! Rose with some spicy Chinese food sounds very good right about now!

Cheers!
