I feel the same way about Bogle which I can find for $10. That is the key to wine IMO. Find what you like. You can find a wine to satisfy your taste at a reasonable price if you check it out. So much of it is marketing...

Speaking of corrections, a 750mL bottle of an Imperial Stout or Barleywine or Tripel or Quadrupel or Belgian Strong Dark Ale would probably not last you onl 30 minutes. I'd wager you and your wife would spend roughly the same amount of time on it as you would that bottle of wine.
A box of wine is 3 liters (4x750mL bottles).

I'd have to try it. I know back in the day, I'd drink oatmeal stouts and such in 15 minutes or so. I just have the wrong attitude when it comes to beer. I realize this, but it's ingrained after 18 years of drinking the stuff. Beer is for quaffing. Wine is for drinking. Whiskey is for sipping. When I have a beer, my attitude is to drink that shit.

If you like reds (and want some that are cheap), I highly recommend Vina Maipo Merlot. I'm usually a cab drinker, but I think their merlot is much more complex and interesting than their cab.

It's become our table wine. We also like Bohemian Highway (despite the stupid ****ing design of the label) and Barefoot Zinfandel. Those are the cheap reds we drink on a regular basis. For better wines, we drink "whiskey reds" like Alexander Valley Cab, Louis Martini Cab, Lake Sonoma Zin. The meatier and more body, the better.

First time I tried it was in this nice Italian mama/papa restaurant in Queens, I asked for something that would go well with my cannelloni and something that was also not too high priced. First time I ever had wine at a restaurant and it was great.

Can't wait to go back.

I will do Vina Maipo Merlot sometime soon if I find it.

Do you try to describe the wine? My girlfriend and I do that sometimes when we are feeling really classy. That $26 stuff I mentioned, her comment: "Tastes sweaty. Yeah, like sweat."



It was a really good description.

I'm working on my palate. It's pretty weak as of now.

Well, shit, I'd drink an oatmeal stout quickly too. Some beer styles are made for brisk drinking. Some decidedly aren't.

Haha. I don't usually talk about the way it "tastes" unless a taste is overwhelming (tobacco, cherry, oak). I usually am more interested in talking about the entry/body/finish as well as the mouth feel. I like wines with a lot of body that linger on the palate. That's why I don't like most pinot noirs. I find that they have a good entry, but that they're too light on the palate and don't stick around. That's why I term the wines I like "whiskey reds." I'm a whiskey drinker. I like wines that provide a similar experience to sipping good whiskey, so I tend toward heavier wines.

I'm not sure how I'd classify Beringer's Cabernet, as being heavier or lighter, just because I haven't had much outside of it. But I'll keep that thought in mind.

I have also watched John Cleese's Wine for the Confused on netflix in order to get more into enjoying wine; that was interesting and helpful, but it's strictly for beginners.
