How would you rate your wine expertise? Novice, Intermediate, Advanced,

I consider myself a novice. I know few regions, and my favorites are spanish: Rioja, Ribera del Duero, Valdepeñas. Of course, I'd love to learn more!

What is your favorite wine-growing region?

Ribera del Duero's probably my favorite, though I recently had a petit verdot from Almansa which blew me away.

Do you prefer red or white wine?

Red, red, and red.

What is your favorite varietal (i.e. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvinion, Shiraz, etc.)

Hmm... I think tempranillo takes the cake for me, though how I mentioned the petit verdot had intriguing flavors, as well as garnacha. Also I've been enjoying quite a few malbecs lately, mostly argentina and chile.

If there is a specific wine that you love and would like to share with the group - please do so.

I'll have to say the wine I've been mentioning in each question: Ribera del Duero, with a side of jamón serrano. Delicious! It just has this particular meat like flavor like tripe or pork rind.
