did you try it with anything else? i know it is going to be a waste of money, but this will give you a great understanding of how wines are over priced. try kendall jackson ($16) and drink it the same time as the Novella, that way you can easily compare the two. You are not going to believe how much better that novella is compared to the bottle that costs $10 more. Seriously try it out, and let me know what you think


I remembered that you wrote that when testing whine, try at least more than one bottle, so I opened up another one, but can't remember what it was, was a white wine as well. I think it was lighter than the chardonnay. Chardonnay was really heavy and kind of bitter/sour? I'll post up the other one, I got like 6 bottles haha. I'll do that later, have to go to school now.

Great thread OP...did you see the links I posted?

Also, what wine do you casually drink at home?

Our region is getting more into wine production you should try some of ours sometime.

any of the wines i listed are my usual wines.... typically the Spier since they are $8.59 or the Mondavi Pinot Noir at $13 for a 1.5L
I was at work before so I didn't check the links out, i just saw the 1st one, however it stopped after 5 minutes.... wtf?

I'll keep an eye out for some SC wines

Jonathan, are most wines from Europe old world wines? And also, what is the type of drink called when you mix Juice with Wine? I remember something like mamousa or mimousa.

Oh and I had a drink with Tequilla and Red wine, anyone know the name of that drink?

i'm so thirsty right now, could go for a glass of wine or two

Depending on the vineyard, yes

Sure there are new wines across Europe, especially now in Spain and Portugal. But when you look at many of the chateaus in Bordeaux, Burgundy, Rhone... and so forth, they've been there for hundreds of years. Same with Italy......

Mimosa's are Champagne mixed with OJ
Sangria is wine mixed with fruit and other things.... such as, Red Wine, OJ, Triple Sec, Ginger Ale, Rum, and cranberry juice, then cut up apples, oranges, etc....

Never heard of tequila with red wine however....

Awesome writeup!

This deserves to be in the general off topic for a little time to get exposure.

a good pinot noir can't be beat.... especially now with the warm weather

however...... it is VERY difficult finding a great $10 bottle. I had La Fortuna Pinot Noir the other night and it tasted more like a beaujolais It wasn't bad, but a Pinot Noir should leave a very fresh and cool feeling in your mouth. This felt hot, it was too new and just wasn't what i was expecting. The body was nice, color was good... but the finish could have been better

Surprisingly Bogle makes a decent one for $18, however I am not too familiar with them so I am going to start buying more. I would say keep an eye out for Oregon Pinot's.... the grape is more sensitive to sunlight so Oregon's climate suits that grape better than sunny California

not crazy about overpopulated california cabs.... so, hess definitly comes to mind, as well as all the mondavi's, kendall jackson, Beringer, BV, and so forth

these companies made a great name for themselves, so they can get away with selling $13-$17 bottles of wine to novists (no offense) when in reality, the wine shouldn't cost more than $10... if that

but ya i agree, hess isn't a choice i would make, especially their chardonnay.... bitter, over oaked, wayyy too acidic
