There are so many great malbecs from Argentina these days and they are one of the best bangs for your $...such nice wines for the price.


We were up in Colorado for the weekend, part of our getaway was the dinner train on Royal Gorge Rail out of Cañon City. We've done this a few times in the past and it's always a nice evening. This time we chose a bottle of their local Winery at the Holy Cross Abbey 2016 syrah. Good wine, maybe even better if it cellars another year, anyway, a glass with dinner and then one outside on the open car, beautiful evening along the Arkansas River.

BBQ with my folks yesterday, and the vin du jour was a lovely 2009 Heathcote shiraz from Tar & Roses. Retails for $19-23 when new (~US$12.5-15). The Heathcote region is northwest of Melbourne, and is warm-climate (probably a bit closer to hot than cool). (y)🍷

Adam @fredblue keeps harping about Port....so I had to do some research as I've never had port. Hmmmmm. Originated from Portugal! I didn't know that.....PORTugal. Imagine that.

Port wine is typically richer, sweeter, heavier, and higher in alcohol content than unfortified wines. This is caused by the addition of distilled grape spirits to fortify the wine and halt fermentation before all the sugar is converted to alcohol, and results in a wine that is usually 19% to 20% alcohol.

Port is commonly served after meals as a dessert wine in English-speaking countries, often with cheese, nuts, and/or chocolate; white and tawny ports are often served as an apéritif. In Europe all types of port are frequently consumed as aperitifs.
