Hi everyone, I'm a new member and new to wine in general and just wanted to introduce myself.
My interest in wine started when I made a new friend who was studying for an exam that I had already taken at the local library. It turned out he was also a huge wine nerd and pretty much all of my current (limited)wine knowledge comes from talking and drinking with him. Wine culture seemed a little intimidating at first, but I figure it's a process and I have the rest of my life to learn. He suggested I register here, so here I am! If he's reading, he'll know who I am.
I've tried a few different kinds of wine and find myself favoring big in-your-face reds, and am partial to barolos and cabernet based wines. My current attitude is: if I like drinking it, it's good.
Recently, I moved from Southern California to the Dallas area and there's a Total Wine nearby so I have a pretty good selection to choose from. Any suggestions on bottles to look out for would be appreciated. Thanks for reading, and I look forward to learning more!
