What Is The Best Red Wine?

Best red wine?  That is a question I have been asked a lot, and it is a tough question to answer!

I have enjoyed all the types of wine, from the driest full-bodied red to the sweetest dessert wine, paired it with all sorts of delicious meals and enjoyed them by themselves.  I've visited wine country, toured wineries, spoken to winemakers and tasted the delicious nectar where it was grown.

Let me tell you, there is nothing quite like feeling the cool breeze that helps grow the grapes while enjoying the wine made in the very vineyard you are looking out on.

How To Start Discovering Red Wine:

In order to know what the best wine is for you, you have to start trying different types.  I started by trying the sweeter, fruitier types of reds, because, well, everything sweet tastes good, right?

Next, I moved on to explore and enjoy Pinot Noir.  Pinot Noir is a very versatile, lighter and fruitier wine.  It is easy to drink and easy to pair as it matches well with anything.

I compared Pinot Noir from California to Burgundy to Germany.

It is interesting how climate can change how these little berries turn into wine.  This method also helped me to understand more about all the wines I tried later and develop what I like and do not like.

I tried Beaujolais next, then Shiraz, Zinfandel, Merlot, Chianti, Tempranillo, Malbec, Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon, Nebbiolo, not to mention any of the red wine blends.  Wine blends, depending on how much of each grape it consists of, can be sweet and fruity or dry and robust.
