Was introduced to Teroldego grown in No. Cal. yesterday. Like it a lot. Brought some home. Zin drinkers should hunt some down.

As I recall from my intemperate youth half a century ago or so Mag Dog Perfect Vision was the wine of choice.

I like big, bold red wines best.

Favorite: Cab Franc (some of the best ones come from the NY Finger Lakes Region)

2nd Favorite: Tannat/Madiran

I do like a good Malbec also.

Well if you're bringing Scotch, cancel the Pinot and I'll join you with a glass of single malt.

No preference - good wine is good wine regardless of grape varietal.

Currently enjoying Felton Road Pinot Noir from Otago in New Zealand.

And some Billcart Salmon (but we won't mention that in a thread devoted to red wine).

No, it was at the Jeff Runquist winery. I believe the grapes are sourced from Lodi.

Looks like West of Temperance get their Teroldego from these guys:

Heringer

How is it?

My experience with Teroldego is the West of Temperance version and a Colorado version from Red Fox Cellars. Both are very good. The Red Fox just won gold in a state competition.
West of Temperance makes some good Italian varietals like Aglianico and Fiano.

I will have to check them out. I have become a fan of Amarone della Valpolicella from the Veneto region of NE Italy in the last couple of years. Thanks for the tips.

We live in Pinot country and I've spent a lot of time there so naturally we drink that more often than most. It's a spendy proposition but such a drinkable varietal. If I could drink another wine as much it would be a variation of Nebiolo. Love Barbaresco and wish I could afford Barolo more. Then a reserve Chianti.

For other occasions I drink Washington Syrahs and blends. Napa and Sonoma blends with steaks

Bordeaux - specifically, Pomerol. But that was when I could buy them for $20/bottle for second-growth vineyards, LOL.

Now it's Pinot - we're very fond of Donatiello, which sadly has recently closed down. Sigh.

Ha, those are both my favorites. I don't drink much red wine though because it seems to irritate my skin.
