I learned this year that Monastrell and Mourvedre are two names for the same grape.
Didn't know that.

Ridge makes a good Mataro

I learned about LaLas this year dance
Syrah and Shiraz are the same thing too.

So is Ugni Blanc and Trebbiano in case anyone was wondering.

Oh, and Zinfandel and Primitivo.

Please tell me you didn't just learn that last night! In ten years when they are discussing the streak, very few will remember that the record breaking point came off a hand rather than a stick.
I truly did. Pretty sure I'm not the only one. At least he didn't brain fart back there like he usually does. Wink

Yeah, you're right. They should have traded him back when you were trying to run him out of town. Big Grin
A partial list of what I've learned:

  • that if you pay attention and listen to your friends, there's a whole wide world of affordable, intriguing white wine out there;
  • that for the most part (as there are always exceptions to the rule) I like my Barolo younger - more or less in the 12-20 age range;
  • that I'm no longer interested in red CdP unless it has serious bottle age, and even then it doesn't really lift my skirt;
  • that my tastes have moved up the road to Northern Rhone, and I can't get enough of bloody raw meat and bacon fat;
  • that I'm a fan of autolytics in my Champagne;
  • that I could drink Champagne every night of the week;
  • that I have a serious wine-buying problem.
