    Hmmm.....


    Ah, red wine. My favorite way to imbibe. I do not currently have any on hand so may make due with a glass of port, which is like a super sweet red wine. Got a red wine req?

    Happy Friday folks. I have home improvement projects looming, like painting and cutting trim. It makes me a little nervous but that port should help.

    There’s a red by Stag’s Leap winery that I loved but I don’t remember which one specifically.
    I’m about to go visit Martin House’s taproom and grab some funky beers. They’ve got a couple of sours I want plus a tres leches cream ale.

    I’m a big fan of Pinotage, which is a type that comes from South Africa. I don’t drink much wine, but my wife and I have been known to split a bottle or so between us.

    For girls, I submit pornstar Dillion Harper.

    Oregon pinot noirs from I think 2015 are good. It was a good year for them.

    I've recently joined a "wine of the month" club where a snobby wine dude curates a case of wines that gets delivered to my door every month for about $30 more than what it would cost me to buy them at the store myself. It's awesome!

    I've tried so many wines from around the world that I normally would not even consider, and have turned out to be really, really tasty.

    I've also ordered a few specialty cases from them, like "it's Chianti time again", or "summer whites", and other specific cases that lean towards my personal preferences, which is a high tannin, rip-your-face-off red from Australia... shiraz or cab sauv. A 2005 E&E Black Pepper Shiraz is my all-time favourite red wine ever, with Justin Vineyard's Isosceles being my go-to for a nice dinner party.

    I'm not into wines, other than a couple sweet wines that are produced here in the Finger Lakes region of NY. Nothing fancy at all, and I'm often teased by true connoisseurs. Maybe because I drink them in a pint glass with crushed ice?

    Any "good" wine I've ever tried doesn't taste that great to me and ends up giving me a headache. I'll stick to the lowbrow stuff.

    I don't know what kind it was, but I have had a legit ''good'' red wine once. My richass uncle opens the good stuff --like $350 bottles-- around Christmas and I had a glass. It was so damned smooth. Just velvety, rich, mmm. I was probably only 23 at the time but understood to enjoy it for what it was and not try to chase that dragon. I can't afford it. I drink my black box and I like it, damnit.

    She also makes derp faces when she gets fucked. But if given the opportunity, I would waste no time weighing options. The rest of her is RIDICULOUS.

    Might be 2017. I’m checking with my wine friend.

    He says 2015 on up.

    I really like good red wine and have done some trips to California and parts of Australia's wine valleys. At some point, though, my girlfriend started getting headaches after red wine - any kind, not just cheap stuff - and that really killed the wine hobby. There are too many times where I just won't polish off the whole bottle myself, so I prefer either single-serving beers or liquor which will keep.

    More than 10 years ago, we made friends with an Australian couple while we were traveling in Ecuador. When we were traveling in Australia a couple years ago, I dropped them a line and they invited us up to their house. As it turns out, they're phenomenally wealthy business owners and we arrived to find this palatial estate complete with an elevator and a 15' deep walk-in wine cooler. We easily drank thousands of dollars worth of wine that night (honestly, I lost track after the first few bottles). Best wine I've ever had by an order of magnitude. Of course, there wasn't a single bottle there that I could actually acquire even if I wanted to spend the money.

    If anyone's ever in Sonoma, though, I'd recommend stopping by Geyser Peak, which is one of the best winery experiences I've ever had, and a couple of their mid-2000s cabs and blends were some of my favorite wines ever.

    Does this count as a flying car or a giant quad copter?

    For you Oenophiliacs, if you’re ever in this area (or West NY state) you won’t want to miss Niagara-On-The-Lake and the paradise it’s become for wine enthusiasts. I wish I was one, because all the wine bars, tasting spots and wineries (Jackson Triggs has a gorgeous new place among many) look like fun.

    That is of course, if things ever get semi-normal again for us all.

    All those deadly, exposed blades 24 inches from an unprotected cockpit.

    What nut agreed to fly that thing?

    Oregoneon pinot flavour is directly correlated to the minerals the vines leech from the rock beneath them. Back when vines were first starting to be planted in Oregon, the roots were shallow and didn't get much flavour into the grape. As the roots grew older and deeper, they got closer and closer to the natural rock formations in the ground. That rock is sometimes called the Mother Rock. The year that a vineyard actually gets to that depth is immediately apparent from the massive taste change in the grape.

    As a result, most vineyards have a specific year or 2 where shit really takes off as that's the year that the vine growth finally got deep enough to tap the natural minerals.

    That's why you'll see some wines called "Mother Rock", etc.

    I did some wine touring in Oregon and it really was amazing to taste pre-mother-rock and post-mother-rock examples... one would be glorified grape juice, and the other would be incredibly complex tasting.

    The faces she makes when she cums has to be some of the ugliest in porn. She goes from hot to looking like she’s having a massive stroke in about 2 seconds.

    Anyway, what’s everyone drinking tonight aside from wine? When my office was permanently closed last month I swiped a nearly full bottle of Blue Label belonging to our ex-CEO that was tucked away in a file cabinet.

    It seems that we're finally allowed to buy TX whiskey in Ohio, so I'm drinking that.
