thanks DD, i've had a Reisling before and I've had Sherry. (i prefer the sherry over reisling). I did your little sweet vs dry test and yes, the bottle I had last night (enough for 1 glass tonight) was dry. it seemed like the chocolate bar took out all that tasted good in the wine away and left yuckieness.

I have an idea....(giggles)....what if we all took pictures of our teeth after this wine tasting

This is Great!!! I love it... OK this is the wine I imbibed on Friday night... Along with my gnocchi....

Name: Terrenal
Price: $4.99
Year: 2006

Short intro from the wine maker about the wine: Nada... Nothing but the warning that alcohol may cause health problems... LOL
Review: Bright acid jerks into lush blackberry and blueberry, brief spice, then dry on the finish and something I would call Iron Pyrite... This toned down with the addition of spicy food and brought the berry flavors forward. I did not taste plum or "jamminess"
Would you buy again?: More than likely not... At least not this particular one. (Please see other reviews)
Wine Pairing Ideas/Recipes: I had mine with a Tomato sauce over gnocchi with Hot Coppa, very delicious. I could very easily see this going well with arrabiatta sauces as well as something like Sesame beef (If memory serves, it is fairly spicy)

OK, This was this evening's wine, had a couple of friends over and popped this one open for a little wine and conversation.... Smile

Name: La Boca
Price: $2.99
Year: 2007

Short intro from the wine maker about the wine: This varietal is grown on the foothills of Los Andes at about 3,000 feet above sea level. A well-balanced red wine with a subtle spicy aroma, and perfect ripe plums and cherries. Ideal to serve with grilled and roasted meats, spicy vegetables and cheese.
Review: This is my choice as a drinking wine... Delicious, juicy, fruit forward. Now they say cherries and plums, I taste blackberry, black raspberry, currants and lots of spice in the finish with low tannins... I would almost call this a sweet wine.
Would you buy again?: Definitely... This is one of my favorite drinking wines.
Wine Pairing Ideas/Recipes: This is good with Tex-Mex, however, the wine is so delicious, who needs food? Laughing

Shane, the La Boca sounds like one I may like better. The first liquor store that I went to had only one choice. So I think I'll check around next time and see what my choices are.

Thanks for the review!

I'm just wondering where everyones getting such inexpensive bottles. aarrgh. I'll have to broaden my horizons and stop being so darned lazy and go to a different store for my wine. I rely way to much on my grocery store.

Danielle - I made a killing at Trader Joe's... I have had the La Boca Malbec Many Many times.... It's one of my old stand by's. It's only slightly more expensive than 2 buck chuck and it's delicious... The other bottle, the Terrenal came from Trader Joe's too... Not so good, or at least not in my opinion... The Metallic taste at the end really did surprise me... I have had other Malbecs, like Lo Tango, and that was the first time I have ever tasted metal in the finish before... The other one I have, is from "Beverages and More".... It was 10.99, I haven't opened that one yet... I was waiting until I finish making lasagna this afternoon... Smile
