    You are not giving me much info here.
    Why was it "almost undrinkable"? It tasted cork? sulfides? acid?
    As I answered before
    "Argentina had a very good season in 2002, so it might hold up well."
    but a 2002 Argentinian Malbec should be drinkable out of the bottle if it is stored right.
    I'm more skeptical when you say that
    "They may have gotten heated up in the few times I've moved"

    If you want a wine from 2002 that you want to be sure is good when you open it buy a few bottles from other producers that have been stored differently.
    Just in order to not put all your eggs in one basket.

    I have really gotten into wine ever since my honeymoon to Tuscany a couple years ago. Ever since then I have been a huge Chianti fan (more Ruffino, less Classico). Have some future plans to move to a plot of land in Umbria that has some wine grapes growing, and some olive trees... and make some of my own. Looking forward to hearing some more of your wines. Ill have to post some up too.

    I am a big wine fan myself. I love a nice Shiraz.

    My favourite is the wolfblass Shiraz grey label. Goes great with my favourite meats. Lamb and rabbit!

    My wife spent plenty of time in Spain and also got me hooked on sangria lol.

    By far, my favorite is Spier's Private Reserve Pinotage.

    Default Ice Wines

    Has anyone here tried this delectable desert wine? It's made from grapes that are picked when they are frozen. There is sn artificial ice wine made from grapes that are frozen after picking, nice but not as smooth. There's also one made from apples that are frozen on the tree. Mighty fine.
    These wines may mot be for everyone, but they are good

    I tried the Viking Landing from Inniskillin Icewines, a few years ago,
    to coffee and a fruit dessert. It was quite nice.

    I see pictures of wine and Italian wine as well.
    I too am into wine as it is part of my job. I taste wine on a daily basis. Of course, I have to do it: it is my job! ;-)
    Great thread!
