What I like about wine:

I love the experience of finding the qualities (flavor, aroma) that remind me of nature. I enjoy being surprised by complexity and love any information I can get about pairings.

Style: Big & Bold
Having a Zinfandel again after a bit of a break... I realize the meatiness, and the smokiness of the Californian varietal overpowers most of what I eat. If you eat red meat or the more unusual types of fowl, this wine would be excellent. It did overwhelm tandoori chicken and very spicy benghan bharta- a smoked eggplant curry.... And that surprised me! This wine was juicy and powerful but the smokiness had an artificially strong presence... Not sure why...

Style: Earth & Spicy
This is a lovely Rhone blend: plum, dark berry, cassis, cardamom, clove & juniper. Wow. What a great value. Improves quite a bit after an hour of aeration. This will be on my repurchase list for sure! Somewhere between earthy and fruity.... Fruit is present on the nose/flavor profile, but the finish is earthy/spicy.

Style: Fruity & Smooth
Wow. I now am aware of vermentino. Such a lovely balance between minerality and a smooth yellow-ripe fruit mouthfeel. Wonderful and a convincing change of pace for those that don't generally get too excited about white wines.
