Thanks for your friendship. Ya, I'm willing to fess up, being right behind you senior year 1980, lol! I was first introduced to "wine" drinking Strawberry Boons Farm that year. YUK! But, I too progressed, hehehe! I also now prefer a really spicy, dry red zin or other delicious red. Though I do enjoy a really great white occasionally, as well.
Your business sounds really interesting and it sounds like you enjoy your work. I will check out your photos.
Please feel free to stop by my site if you enjoy all-natural, gourmet scented candles, too! www.yourgourmetcandleshop.com
I love food and I love to cook, I cater when I have the opportunity, and of course I love wine . Red is usually my choice ( almost always) I also enjoy mtn. biking, yoga , and body snatching ( just kidding ) Started drinking white zin ... Sutter Home senior year in high school 1979 , when you went on a date ....yuk . Quickly moved on to Chianti so on and so on. Drinking red zins since 1984 when there were few and hard to find . run my own business called Blue Thistle, which includes gardening /landscaping (not the 12 guys cutting the lawn thing with blowers and all) What I try to create is a space that is appropriate for the home and feels natural to its outside environment.<br><br>I also appreciate flowers which gives me the opportunity to create beautiful floral arrangements for weddings/ events etc. Blue Thistle @ 201-566- 2569You can check out some photos of my work on the link below although right now it is mostly floral arrangements. flickr.com/photos/bluethistle
Zinfandel can be light and fruity, much like French Beaujolais, or lively, complex and age worthy, like cabernet sauvignon or claret. It can also be made into big, ripe, high alcohol style wines that almost resemble port.
Zinfandel has a very hardy nature. Adaptable to a wide range of soils and climates, its vines tend to be vigorous and productive.
Because of its vigor, generosity and resistance to vine disease, many zinfandel vineyards exist that are seventy-five to more than one hundred years old.
Zinfandel aficionados believe these "old vines" produce the best wines because the older vineyards set smaller crops and the grapes tend to ripen more evenly.
Zinfandel is one red varietal that is best enjoyed in its youth. With more bottle age the luscious fruit that distinguishes Zinfandel drops markedly and the wine can show a pronounced taste of higher alcohol levels.
When paired with grilled steaks, chops or meat that has been stewed Zinfandel becomes a prime motivation for people to become wine lovers.
Please post your reviews for red wines here. I encourage everyone to participate in a lively discussion of their favorite red wines. Your review may be as formal or informal as you like. It would be great if you could also rate the wine on a 100 point scale.
This group is for everyone. Check in here to meet one another, talk about your favorite wine, restaurants, outings, travels, and/or just get to know the others who belong to Must Love Wine. We already know we have one thing in common, we all love wine.
Welcome to the Must Love Wine Group for New York City. Once we have enough members we will pick group leaders and officers to run the group and arrange local wine tastings and get togethers for those that wish to partake. I have a few hundred invitations to send out so hopefully the group grows quickly and can be turned over to the new group leaders for this NYC Wine Group.
If you know of any good wine bars or wine dinners coming up please post them here so the group knows. Thanks.
