Sovereign Blanc - the best wine ever made
« on: January 15, 2009, 01:20:16 AM »
 :rockon: to Robert Mondavi for inventing this wine.

WC wouldn't like it though.  The alcohol content is only 13%.

I guess I am not on the "night train" with this wine  :lol:

What is your favorite wine?

I could talk about wine all night. I love red. Syrah, Pinot noir, some merlots but mostly a blended bottle. I do like Riesling as far as whites go. Mondavi makes a great one.
When I come home late at night, don't ask me where I've been. Just count your stars I'm home again!

Mondavi wines have great legs.

For those of you who don't have a clue as to what I am talking about, "legs" are the streams of wine that come down off the glass when you swirl it around during a tasting.


What are Wine Legs?
Guest Author - Paula S.W. Laurita


Some people call them fingers, the French call them tears. What are they, and are they an indicator of quality in wine?
When people swirl a glass of wine and examine how it runs down the side of the glass they are looking at the legs or fingers of the wine. The French refer to this as the wine's tears.

There are those who argue that you can tell the quality of a wine by its legs. Okay, fine. But, what is it?

Legs are based upon the Marangoni effect, the fact that alcohol evaporates faster than water. The alcohol goes up the side of the glass as it evaporates, but since there is a film of water on top, it is pushed up in an arch. Eventually gravity wins, the water's surface tension is broken, and down runs the water, in tears.

Theoretically the more legs, the better the wine. Yet, the needed amount of alcohol necessary to create a difference would push a wine into the fortified wine category. To get to the essence of the debate: Legs really don't have much significance in judging a wine. It's nice to look at and good terms to drop into a wine conversation. Just don't place too much empahsis on legs as an method to evaluate wine.

I like the rose wine, but to tell the truth as I can't mix I rather drink water and then have a whiskey after dinner

I only like some white wines. And even then, not many. No no, I think I'll stick to my Bacardi :lol:
I think it is high time for a bit of class around here, don't you?

I'll take the Bacardi as long as it's in something tropical & frothy and I'm sitting next to a pool without a care in the world.....for a moment anyway. :nod:
