I haven't been drinking a lot of wine since I've been in Vegas,
but I occasionally visit this lovely little wine bar.
http://www.marchebacchus.com/flash/ (Sorry...button's still not working.)

I'm rarely impressed these days, but I ran across a really nice wine the other day.
Garnacha de Fuego 2007.
Here's a review:
http://www.wineweekl...nacha-de-fuego/

My review would be simply, Smells smoky in the glass, tastes fruity in the mouth.

The bar has an immense selection organized in crates.
I'm like a deer in the headlights in there,
so if anyone has any recommendations for my next visit,
feel free to post 'em here.

The Chateau Beaucastel Chateauneuf du Pape is one of my favorites. They don't list the vintage, but if it's an '04, that's a good price. I attended a vertical tasting 2 years ago with one of the Perrin sons. He was a bit snooty, but generous with the wine.

Since I'm now a poor bastard I'm always on the lookout for fantastic wines at bargain prices. My current go-to is Paul Autard's Cotes du Rhone. Both the '06 and '07 are fantastic for the money. I have yet to find a wine I like this much for so little $$. I picked up several cases at wholesale from the distributor this winter. You'll probably see it retail between $10-$15 a bottle. YMMV
for some people, there's money in absinthe. And for some, there's only absinthe in absinthe.

I got lost when he left Western EuroFuckyLand.

I'm pretty sure that even with almost 1000 bottles,
this place pretty much serves mostly from
US, France, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Italy, Germany, Australia and NZ.
I've never seen a bottle from Hungary or Moldova, but I'll check.

That would be really weird if Hungarian wines weren't available. As regards the ones from Moldova, they have appeared just in the recent times in Poland themselves, so they are slowly conquering the markets of EuroFuckyLand and the US as well.

Tits, I'm just saying that in all my sifting,

Among the most noteworthy
of Hungarian wines are Tokaji
- sweet dessert wines.

Bulls' blood - Egri bikaver
are muscular table wines
Full-bodied, robust, butt
table wines, nothing more.

Unless ya find a vintage one. While in Hungary I have spotted EB 1986, was not that cheap as table wines go. EB requires agin' and the brand name has Eger AOC, so things have changed, Bugz. Egri Burgundi is a good option as well (was very popular in Poland of the 70's). The typical table wine-style wood be Egri Bor, the lowest grade in the range, butt drinkable.

Keep on searchin', Abby!

With Tokaji, I wood start with lesser brands like Harslevelu or Furmint, if ya like 'em, Aszu and the rest shall be to yer likin'. As regards Aszu, the more puttonyos ya see, the sweeter the fuck will be and might be more expensive as well.

Egri Bikaver Simon 2004 12.5%


Ah! The memories. Darn good wine in Hungary if you know where to look; pretty good value but not for long (given the propensity of the Austrians and the French to snatch all the wine makers).

I prefer the Sant Andrea Bikavér - it also ages better.

Some pinot noirs from Eger are also darn good but hard to find, even in Eger. Thummerer seems to ship everything to fat bastards with lots'o money abroad.

St Andrea Napbor 2004 is a white with an incredible nose. Too bad I haven't got any left.

Tokaji Szamorodni-up to 2000, 12%

Dry szamorodni was my favourite aperitif wine until I had none left.

In Tokaj, give the Hímesudvar winery a spin ( http://www.himesudva...ish/webshop.php ). They're small and their wines aren't always the same year over year, but they're darn good (especially the Hárslevelű and the late harvest Kövérszőlő). Their Aszú is also delicious most of the time (at least for 1998, 1999 and 2000) - and each year is very different.

From a different region, also not too bad and refreshing for a white wine at a reasonable price: Pannonhalma Apátsági Pincészet Tricollis Cuvee (Sint-Martinus is also good if you're into Gewürztraminer).

I wonder if our friends in the US can get their gritty paws on these. They're all

That's true for some of them, but not all of them; you can't judge them by the appelation (no more than you can bin all Côtes-du-Rhone in the same bucket).

Sant Andrea kicks ass (though my bottles evolved strangely - excellent at 3 years of age but evidently dangerously "pushed" by young oak, too much oak for a couple of years, and superb after nine years).

And learn to pronounce.

Hárslevelű : pretty sweet.
Furmint: drier.

Both are excellent regional products. Furmint *can* be a bit nondescript, but can also be darn good ( if you like dry and slightly mineral yet fragrant wines).

If you're into muscat wines, Sárgamuskotály from Tokaj is also darn good. Especially the late harvest ones if you like sweet (and can't afford the Aszú ;) ).

Let me switch to pinot noir, then: you can read it, you just can't pronounce it properly.

Good, from Eger (and all easy to read):

Sant Andrea
Thummerer (if someone else buys you a bottle)
Gal Tibor (only when it's aged, and not all vintages)

Good, from the Enemy Down South (for someone from Eger), Villány:
Tiffan (if you like fruit)
Vylyan (if you like wood and don't mind something with a wierdly spelled name again).

One warning sign: I only drank 2001-2003, but I assume they're capable winemakers. But there's a lot more variation year over year than even for small producers in Burgundy.

We expect a full report after you have located the Hungarian wines. You've even got an address of a local web shop (they do ship to the US), so you have no excuse.

But Listen to Bognoz: if Egri Bikaver doesn't come from a big name ingood wine from Eger (Gal Tibor, Thummerer, Sant Andrea, Simon) and has a seedy label (especially with psychedelic bull patterns or anything that looks medieval to stress the "traditional" aspect), run away fast.

Some more good wine makers in Eger: Simon (not only for the Bikaver, 2000 Don Simon was something), Monarchia.

Lest I forget: Hungarians make *mean* young 100% Cabernet Franc, even better than the French can (in a good mood). Try Ferenc Takler (he also makes a typical "Kekfrancos" from a local grape that's good).

http://www.hungarian...nunciation.aspx

You'll impress the locals if you get all the vowels right. Nobody does (to the great hilarity of the Hungarians when you're there. It's a language you really can't understand a *word* in, so you don't even know what they're saying when they're having fun at your expense).

As for pronouncing "pinot noir", I've given up trying to teach anyone in the US.

Still hard not to forget one of the all-important diacriticals. By now, we must have forgotten the accent on "Bikavér" a thousand times in this thread (which turns beekahvur into beekahveyr).

Funnily, it's an agglutinative language quite close to Finnish, so one of the things it reminds you when people speak is Quenya (the ceremonial Elvish tongue) - because Tolkien wanted Quenya to look like an Ugric language.

Only it's not a dead language, so you can't spend half an hour looking up a single sentence.

Off the top of my head... the AtoZ Pinot Noir isn't too shabby, and the Hogue Riesling is a decent quaff if you like sweet desert whites.

I've had the the Almire Grenache and Big House Red and enjoyed both.

The Almira was better: deep, dark and smooth,
the Big House seemed schizophrenic, too many varieties in one bottle,
but worked fairly well considering.

I only drink reds and mostly young and fruity. Best wine I've ever had is Girardet Baco Noir. Small winery outside of Portland. Baco is a bitchy little varietal similar to Pinot but with more intense fruit depth and legs like a muthafucker.

http://www.girardetwine.com/

Best price I've found:
http://www.izowine.c...roducts_id=2107


Lately I've been slummin' with a bottle from the grocery store I like. Bancrock Station Syrah. Young and fruity with just a touch of oak. Very drinkable and around 7 bucks.

Anyways.

"the AtoZ Pinot Noir isn't too shabby, and the Hogue Riesling is a decent quaff if you like sweet desert whites. "
Thanks for the advice, I don't care for sweet wine but that was decent and I'm buying more of it, the AtoZ thin and watery but drinkable too.

"I've had the the Almire Grenache and Big House Red and enjoyed both"
Tried 'em both, thanks for the advice, drinkable and I'm buying some more of it.
I'm no wine conasewer but I like it when they don't taste like vinegar. I like it even more when I can taste the grapes in it.

Kirk- glad to be of some help.

I've come to realize that wine can be VERY subjective.

Shit is almost always shit, but anything after that can be a mystery.
for some people, there's money in absinthe. And for some, there's only absinthe in absinthe.

I concur. I buy a case every year when it comes out. Great wine. Gotta let the bottle breathe for a couple of hours, or better yet decant it. I opened a bottle of the '04 Phantom a few days ago. Fucking fantastic.

I don't know much about wine so I buy what ever I hear about here, (if it's cheap enough), bought the Bogle phantom 2006, love it, it's twice the price of the last wine I didn't sink but I'll live with that.
Is that Girardet really worth the price? I don't like to pay much for wine but the Bogle seems almost worth it, how about the Girardet?

If you would like to try something different, try Samson Estate's Delilah. My personal favorite is the Raspberry, it tastes like crushed raspberries. Blackberry is worth trying too.

*Bump*

Kirk, you asked about the Girardet Baco Noir. Well, I had an '05 when we were in Portland back in '07 and it was the best red I'd ever tasted. Had amazing legs in a clear Solo cup and threw a garnet prism on the asphalt. Crazy xit, we were all amazed. Not sure about recent vintages, but I'd wager. Small little family operation dealing with a bitchy little grape. IZOwines is who I ordered through when I got back home.

I must say I have been more amused with these posts. It's like 5 year old's bickering about who has the better dessert. But seriously Solaris...Boone's Farm? That's for those who can't afford good quality wine or any drink for that matter and are just looking to get drunk quick. The drawback - a nasty hangover every time afterward. You need many lessons in many areas. I'm guessing you're not a teenager, so Boone's Farm shouldn't even be a part of your vocabulary. You've got a lot of info on absinthe, now start learning about wine. Look it up, read about it, research, and the best thing to do is go to wine tastings. There you get to try many different types and flavors and the makers will talk to you about the wines. Do your homework.
Why yes, they are real.

I went to a whine festival last year and most of the vendors were very new, but the one I found very impressive was First Colony, and roughly everything they had to offer. I did not enjoy them years ago, but they did impressed me now. Their old Cab Franc was tannin heavy and oaked to death, as was par back then, like someone was trying to smack the taste out of your mouth.
I used to hate sweet reds, but I would image that would have something to do with crappy the Lambrusco locally available at mediocre Italian joints (pretty much on par with Boone's Farm with more body).

I burned out on whine a few years ago. Amber brings home stuffs from Gallo on a regular basis, most gets sinked after a glass.

I do like Starborough Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough. A deal at 10 bucks a bottle.

I'm glad you said that because that's usually how I buy wine, someone I know said it's cheap, I drank it.

Yeah that was me a Reszow. I am the one with the bushy 'stach holding up one of the tent poles a selling tickets to the pony ride. By pony ride I mean my sister.

Actually I'm lying: I don't have a sister; it was my brother in a dress.

Then we opened Bogrationi Eniseli XO 25 yr old brandy... Yeah!

Red and sweet? Kagor is my heart's the loudest beat. Check out not only the regular from Moldova but vintage from cellars of Crimean Massandra. Not xure what might be available in the US, if any, but it is a bargain when compared with other r&s. Not an alternative to port, though. However, if the latter is called for, Massandra Portwein or Portcoast will do.

Plantaže Montenegrin Black

semi-sweet, light abv (11.5), very rounded. Not an alternative to Christ's Blood as Kagor is many a time referred to, but a nice red wine.

I was recently served my first wine from a can.

Field Recordings Fiction Paso Robles.

It was delightful.

Went very nicely with the wild boar.
