Best premium wine that's light to medium body... Semi sweet or off dry?

You want to try German Riesling. Kabinet is off dry, Spatlese is semi sweet. I will think about it for a bit and PM you a list of producers to look for.

Thank you! I would appreciate that list.

I took the advice and went to the local wine shop today. They did not have a German Riesling but they did have a German RED. I bought it and love it. Valkenburg. Ever heard? It is underrated to me based off of reviews (86 WE) but I am absolutely in love with. Thanks for suggesting Germany.

I can't find any of the reds from Spey's Corner thread here locally, been venturing off the typical cab here lately and enjoying some Bordeaux lately.

Kosher wines have came a long way. If the Muscato was in a blue bottle it was Bartenura. It is our best selling one.

that's the one!
quite sweet, but very good in the right situation.
was excellent with cut up fresh fruit (melons, pineapple, strawberries...)
the bottle blurb suggested cheese, we didn't try that.

Allen, gonna serve Recanati Yasmin Red cab/merlot blend later as our red offering.
What do you think?

I'd buy it again. very nice. enough fruit up front and in the middle, not too thick and jammy at all.
good wif brisket tonight, could see it wif spicy food.
I think it was $12 or $14.

also well received tonight was a white from Marlborough NZ, Saint Clair 2017 Sauvignon Blanc. A bit fruity, a light citrus finish...just read the back...that citrus is grapefruit, they are correct.

The meal was fantastic. Every couple brought one fun wine, and one serious wine. 7 courses of great food. Drink what you want. Topped the night off with a 15 year old Arturo Fuentes Anejo.

Yesterday I went for a hike then stopped by my favorite tasting room for a flight.

Chenin blanc (very tasty white)
Viognier (sp?) decent but not the depth the blanc has
Sangiovese (so good)
Orion’s Nebula (cab franc, Tempranillo and petit verdot) rich red

Then had a glass of Orion’s Nebula.

Got home and finished a bottle of Schmidt Family Vineyards Tempranillo

maybe it's just the season, but at this point I seem to prefer roses.
I never completely stopped drinking them last Summer, there were just less available to purchase. But they are back.

You are going to see more and more roses. People are beginning to understand how delicious they are. Producers are making more roses every year. We have over 100 different roses this year. Probably the biggest mind set change is people are beginning to understand roses are their own unique type of wine. They are not red or white. Though they are more like a red wine than a white wine. For me, I only want a light chill on a rose. Say about 55 degree F. Also I find there are certain grapes or blends of grapes I prefer in a rose. 🍷

Yes, CL, I do have a wine cellar. That was a must have with the new house. Took about 2 months to build. Decent size, holds about, well, a lot of wine. The cellar is way cool. All brick with a floor of granite pavers that have about 100 years of use . The floor has a European cobblestone street feel to it.. Slightly arched ceiling. Weeping mortar. The racking is inset into the walls. Took 2 five gallon pails laid on their side one above the other to create the openings the racking goes in. Totally a midieval look. Found an old monks cell door years ago. It completes the look. Turned a number very old black metal wall sconces into LED lighting. Now the next project. Building the 2 adjoining rooms in the basement. I have some very specific goals for them.
