LOL... Funny, I just ran to Cost Plus at lunch and picked up a decanter made of Spanish Green Glass... Surprisingly inexpensive...
Although, I have a pretty young Malbec, so I don't think decanting will make much of a difference....

I'm glad you mentioned that....how young is "young" a couple of years? 2? 3? or does it depend on the type of wine?

The one I have is SO young, the Vinatge date is 1 month ago... LOL Wink

Let's see this is 08? So I would consider a wine still young if it was an 07/06.. 05 is a teenager... 04 or older... But then again, it depends on the wine, and the vintner... Some wines are "Drink it nows" and others are "Lay downs" it just depends on WHO made the Malbec...

So i will be drinking several bottles, so I can inform people of which ones are best drank young and which ones should be waited on... Smile Cause I am a caring individual like that... LOL

Awe Shane, how chilvarous of you! Putting yourself out there and drinking all of that wine, just for us! Embarassed makes me blush

The liquor store I went to today only had one, yes ONE kind. (I'll have to go look in a minute, Conquisto I think?) Anywho, I figure I have all month so I plan on trying more than one too. (if it comes close to likeable for me) I might even wait to hear other reviews and see if I can find one that someone else tries too.

Has anyone had Barolo wine?

That is the red I had last night and was pleased with it.

Per the Wiki:
Quote:
Barolo is an Italian wine, one of many to claim the title "Wine of kings, and king of wines". Only vineyards in the hills with suitable slopes and orientations are considered adapted to production, and the terrains must be primarily clayey-calcareous in character.

It matures at the end of September. The clusters are dark blue and greyish with the abundant wax that dresses the grapes. Their form is lengthened, pyramidal, with small, spherical grapes with substantial peel. The leaves are of average size with three or five lobes.

Barolo typically smells of tar and roses, and can take on an unusual orange tinge with age. When subjected to aging of at least five years, the wine can be labeled a Riserva. The initial nose of a barolo is often that of the pine tree.

For connoisseurs it is Italy's most collected wine; for beginners it is a difficult one to understand.

I like Barolo and Barabesco - however, they are usually too expensive... The cheapest one I have found was in the high 20s... so I don;t have them very often. The blend for both is comprised of Nebbiolo grapes and a couple of others... Now when I can find a varietal Nebbiolo wine, I am all over it... delicious... A little sharp at first, but it;s big on the juicy red and black fruits and warmer spice, like a ginger/blackpepper combination... with a hint of chocolate and/or coffee depending on where it's from ...

I agree they are expensive - we got the Barolo for Steve's cousin to celebrate his birthday and wedding anniversary so that is why we got a nice bottle...

Ok! I can't wait until next weekend.... Does Malbec go with pizza?

I think I'm picking some up on my way home.
