Wayne

on my 21st birthday I was living in Calf...courtsey of the USN
I walked down to the store to buy something...anything on my 21st birthday
I was so broke that I scratched together a few coins and bought a $0.31 bottle of Ripple

they didn't ask for ID
I took a sip and spat it out and threw the rest away...(sigh)

Cabernet Sauvignon!
It's the only wine I drink nowadays with any food, or without food.
If the food does not taste good with Cabernet Sauvignon, don't change your wine, change your food!:)

Beer! But if you insist, a fresh chilled Chianti.

:eek: OMG, don't chill the Chianti. That's alcohol abuse!

Reds in general should be at room temperature or just a bit cooler, otherwise you taste the tannins too much. Chianti in particular is a "stronger" taste, some people would say more bitter, than most red wines. I happen to like it but at room temperature, please! :D

Nup, I like Chianti cool, over ice in the summer. Now a serious big dry red or a smooth Shiraz is a different kettle of fish entirely.

I like Strawberry Knoll if a sour cream chip is being served.

A white Wine with Frito lays.

But none of this is set in stone.

. . . Strawberry Knoll . . .

I don't claim to be a wine connoisseur. Is that anything like Boone's Farm original strawberry? :p

If it's a really good potato chip....
A bottle of chilled Chateau LaFitte Rothschild, 1928.......and to splurge a bottle of 1959 would be doubly nice.

Get yerself a real nice ale - I just had a Hens Tooth, and it was marvelous.

Then just throw away the chips.

Hey, no kidding, fine champaigne. Potato chips are so common, its easy to forget that they are really an amazing culinary creation, salty crispy, a delight. In France, they are not looked down on, and champagne would be appropriate.

Just don't eat them by the fistful.

Correct.
But tonight I am drinking a lesser Australian Shiraz.
Not with potato chips since they are not on the training table, but perhaps tomorrow I will make non fat, non oil or salt potato chips and open a Merlot...

Two bottles of something strong, then I'd eat the crisps.



I can't abide salt and vinegar crisps.:eek:

Remember that when wine people say reds should be served at room temperature, they mean British room temp, not american, and whites should not be ice cold, either, except maybe muscadet or a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc for your oysters.

There is one rule of thumb that says put a red in the fridge for 25-20 minutes to slightly cool it, take a white out of the fridge 25-20 minutes before you drink it, to let it warm.

Champagne and potato chips; Some Like It Hot. Youtube it.

Champagne. Inspired.

Any sweet white would be nice. Riesling, maybe a Gewurtztraminer, or a late harvest chardonnay.

Red wine not so good with salty. A sparkling pinot noir might do. Or a port. Yeah, a nice big tawny port.

Or you could give the chips to the dog, and find a woman who likes champagne...it's a proven panty-dropper.

a good beer goes well with tater chips, not wine...

sweet red wine goes very well with extra sharp cheddar on ritz cracker.. or blue ceese crumbles whipped into philly cream cheese spreaded on townhouse crackers/bagels...

And I had a nice Cabernet:D.

In that case a cherry Manischewitz, Although in a pinch concord grape or even Blackberry or even Elderberry..

If sour cream chips are used reverse this order.

If one has no chips go with any order you choose.

I don't recall exactly which radio program it was, but someone called in to the wine expert "What wine goes with Twinkies?" Without skipping a beat, the expert said "Fast wine...it ages on the back of the truck."

C. Ross

Throw away the cheese. Start with white, then go to red, then to brandy. Beer for tomorrow morning.
