nickanthonyI'm looking for a nice red wine to add to our tasting Saturday night. We were going to feature the Primus as one of our blends but can't get enough bottles for 60 people. Any ideas?

I love wine, and have for years. Almost every day one of my friends and fellow workers asked me to recommend a wine for their dinner or party. So, here are my recommendations for all to enjoy.
Greetings from Catawba Island, Ohio!
A few weeks back, Nick On Wine was asked to host a private wine tasting for a home owners association here on the island. With the help of my pal, Melissa from Bassett's Wine Department we featured eight different wines that evening, three whites and five...
Greetings from Akron, Ohio!
I had a wonderful dinner last night at Flemming's Steak House in Montrose with my friends Matt from Nashville and Sue from Akron. Matt is the guy that introduced me to the Justin "Orphan" and I brought a bottle of the latest 2006 vintage to share.
Greetings from Beverly Hills, California!
During our weekend visiting Mark and Jackie in California, Diane and I had dinner on Saturday night at Mastro's Steak House in Beverly Hills. Mastro's is one of Mark and Jackie's favorites, right down the street from Spago on Canon.
Greetings from the Lake Erie Islands!

I'd like to thank everyone for being a part of the beta version of must love wine. It has been fun yet trying at times but we are now ready to move forward. We will be buying a lot of advertising to increase the site's membership but the best fo...
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.
