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.

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

Same here :D I rather have rum, jagermeister or whiskey than wine.

Plus nobody can stand me drunk if I drink wine. :ninja:

Not much of a white, but I do like some unoaked Chards or some blended whites. Seven Heavenly Chards was good or I found a good one at Target, of all places, called Seven Daughters. Also just saw it in my grocery store.

That's what I heard. But they are quite pricey. You truly can find better quality for a better price if you find a wine shop with knowledgeable staff. I can describe what I'm looking for in a wine and my guy always steers me in the right direction. I LOVE reds, not any one in particular. Tried them all, but something was just missing. He said you need to try a blend. Voila! Love at first sip. Maybe just a coincidence, but everything I love so far is from California. You should have lots of great finds there. CHEERS! :D

Look for a bottle that combines sweet with drier, heavier. My staple bottle so far this year is a red called Menage A Trois. It blends Zinfandel, Merlot & Cabernet. $10 bottle that tastes like a $30 bottle. Same goes with the whites. The Seven Daughters blends 7 different whites sweet & dry. Just read the bottles. You'll have fun searching.

The barrel that you can get here for 20,000 us dollars, costs only u$s 9,000 in the states.
And the single barrel that you can buy here for 130 u$s costs 43 u$s in the states.

: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?

If you're keeping score at home....

Mondavi invented the name "Fume Blanc" as a way to move a poorly selling Sauvignon Blanc. Sauvignon blanc is merely the name of the grape. He didn't patent his name and now "Fume Blanc" is used by many other wine makers to sell this particular grape variety.
