    Pinot Noir, merlot, and syrah!

    Syrahs from "K vintners" have been my favorites lately!

    I know, actually I am trying to aquire a taste for Moose Drool. It is locally brewed. But I thought the name was a bit off color for a wine thread..

    Wish I could be more help.... Hey! I have found that to make all wines more friendly to the pallet, with any meat, simply add 7up.

    Sorry, not trying to mess up your thread. I will return to my corner now. :)

    I personally dont know ''jack'' about wine. I actually get a headache just from the smell of most wines. However, my mom likes a red wine with real meat, and a white wine with seafood, or on a hot summer evening on the porch.
    My grandma prefers a red wine with any meal.

    On the other hand, I know a couple people who like whatever is in the box:D

    I prefer Henery's Private Reserve, or O'Bahn Scotch on the rocks with dinner, and Coors light or 7&7 or Pendelton Whiskey strait up for ''social outings''.

    Unfortunately I guess Im not ''refined'' enough to enjoy wine.
    I did have some Late Harvest (super high sugar content) from Hyatt Vinniards in Zilla Wa.(real tall skinny bottle. Only about half as much wine as I thought Id get for the price I paid for it...Must be harder to harvest grapes in the winter?) that my wife couldnt finnish. She said it was too sweet. I kinda thought if wine tasted more like that, alot more poeple would drink it. Sorry I couldnt be of much help.

    The only wine I've ever really enjoyed was a sparking date wine I had in Malaysia. That stuff was amazing! I guess I'm still too young to appreciate or enjoy wine.

    My preference for things like fish or rabbit would be a pinot gris /grigio,barrossa valley semillon or a young harvested merlot,for duck a mature merlot and venison definitely a nice shiraz,we have some amazing wine makers downunder showing a thing or two to the french and italians.

    Good feed back guys thanks.

    Being young has nothing to do with liking or disliking wine to be honest I hated it until about 5 years ago when I met my wife and she was not a big fan either (she drinks jack strait from the bottle).

    But her father has this small place in the Finger lakes and I have been working there summers and have grown quite fond of the stuff. Started out liking the sweet stuff which I guess is what most people do but my tast are evolving.
