  1. Great simple and thorough post.  I am going to bookmark this for future reference.  Just wondering if you can tell the type of red wine by its colour?  Are some lighter and some richer in colour?  I know that Rose is much lighter.  Do any of the ones you mentioned have a tell tale colour tone?

    • The Rose’s and some Zinfandels can be lighter… Pinkish.  However most reds are darker in coloration i.e. Syrah, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Bordeaux, Malbec or Pinot Noir. Please contact me anytime for a recommendation.

  2. Thank you for sharing with us this great review on red wines.I was surprised when I saw this post and found that red wines are in different types.I am not a good drunk of red wines but I can drink it occasionally that’s why I am reading this post.

    As we are approaching Christmas day,I bet that many families will need red wines to celebrate it and I am among them.I now know the types of red wines so I will choose my christmas red wine accordingly.

    • Thank you for your comment. Please enjoy your holiday with a good selection reds and maybe some whites as well. Also for New Years try some Champagne!

  3. I’ve always been confused about where moscato fits into the wines. Although I know the regular moscato is considered a white wine, would pink moscato be considered a red wine as well? Or does the fact that it’s moscato automatically make pink moscato fall into the white wine category as well?

    I’ve never been a fan of red wines, but it’s nice to know what’s considered a red wine so I know what to avoid when dining out, or maybe if I try a couple of wines other than Merlot, I’ll actually find a red wine that I actually enjoy! Thanks for the useful info!

  4. Hi Joe,

    By your descriptions, these wines all sound wonderful!

    I am curious to know, what would you suggest as a good starter for someone who is just venturing into red wines? I’ve always stuck with whites because I heard that reds can be on the dry side. I would like to find one that’s not so dry. Can you guide me in the right direction?

  5. This was a very interesting article even though i didnt really understand any of it lol.  I am not a wine drinker, i just never liked the taste of it.  It is crazy how wine is made and all the different places it comes from.  You must know your wine and hopefully this niche works out for you!

  6. Wow I love drinking red wine. I didn’t know there were different types. I should really pick one that suits the occassion. I’m also thinking about purchasing one for this upcoming holiday. I’m thinking about purchasing a Bordeaux to unwind for the weekend.

    These are really insightful and wine does have a wide variety of options to choose from.

    Thank you for this!

    Jose
