Does anyone here loves wine ?

I do. Have a nice cellar still growing and like to discover new wines and regions. Pretty much into Red Bordeaux, Northen Rhone Syrahs and Chile Cab and Syrah...

How about Spanish Rioja (e.g. Bodega Marqués de Murrieta Castillo Ygay Gran Reserva Especial), Italian Vino Nobile di Montepulciano (e.g. Poliziano), German Spätburgunder from the Ahr region (e.g. Mayer-Näckel S), Australian Grange (e.g. Penfolds) or South African Pinot Noir (e.g. Hamilton Russell W.O. Walker Bay), all excellent red wines.

Good choices indeed ! Have the Ygay in the cellar and had the Hamilton Russel (2001) few weeks ago. Was excellent !

I'm pretty much addict to Syrahs and Cabernet-Sauvignon (Northen Rhone Valley and Chile for the first, Bordeaux left Bank and Chile again for CS)...

I am not into wine myself but since you are, have you ever heard of a wine areator or decantor? I think it goes in the end of the bottle and you pour the wine through it to give the wine a better flavor. My wife is a wine drinker and her birthday is coming up. Curious if this would be something that she might like.

I love my Vinturi (aerator) and I also decant many wines, and often do both (aerate into the decanter).  I've done many blind taste-tests with both wine connoisseurs (albiet, most self-proclaimed, but one is a world-travelled sommelier) and wine-pigs alike, and have shown time/time again it improves flavours to various degrees.

I have a number of older wines that I aerate and then decant with very amazing results....completely modify the taste of the wine in some cases (in a good way).
