Portuguese Wine
The 2001 Altano Reserva Douro is an excellent wine from the Douro region. It is a blend of the two Portuguese native grapes— Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca—and is oak aged, creating a wine of ripe cherry, berry, and vanilla bean flavors.

Spanish Wine - Sherry
Pedro Domecq makes a dry Oloroso called Río Viejo, which tastes of nuts and brown sugar without any sweetness.

French Wine - Wines of Southwest France
The main grape of Cahors is Auxerrois, also called Cot in the Loire and Malbec in Argentina.These wines generally exude aromas of blackberries, black plum, and dried fruit. Wine from this variety in France is generally more tannic than the slightly rounder and softer version from Argentina.

Serving Wine Like a Professional
Different decanter styles exist for different wines. Young wines need more oxygen to open up than old wines, so a broad-bottomed decanter is best, giving the wine a larger surface area to be in contact with the air. Old wines on the other hand are more fragile, so taller, slimmer decanters are best, exposing less wine to the air yet offering means to separate the wine from the sediment.

French Wine - Wines of Bordeaux
Fifth growths include: Château Pontet- Canet, Château Batailley, Château Haut-Batailley, Château Haut-Bages-Libéral, Château Grand-Puy-Lacoste, Château Grand-Puy- Ducasse, Château Lynch-Bages, Château Lynch- Moussas, Château Dauzac, Château d'Armailhac, Château du Tertre, Château Pédesclaux, Château Belgrave, Château Camensac, Château Cos Labory, Château Clerc-Milon, Château Croizet-Bages, and Château Cantemerle.

French Wine - Wines of Champagne
Many top Champagne houses are controlled by the luxury goods conglomerate Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy, including Moët et Chandon, Dom Pérignon, Krug, Ruinart, Mercier, and Veuve Clicquot. These wines are consistently good quality but expensive.

American Wine - Wines of Oregon,Washington, and Idaho
Chateau Ste. Michelle's Cabernet Sauvignon 2000 is a striking wine for the price. A creamy, black pepper, plum, and black currant nose followed by a rich, full palate of ripe, gripping tannins and balanced acidity. Generous mouthfeel. Best with meat or cheese to soften the tannins. Medium length. Very good value at about $10.

South African Wine
Garagiste winemaker Tom Lubbe creates very small amounts of highly acclaimed Syrah, called The Observatory. He uses grapes from his own farm in the mountainous Paardeberg area northwest of Cape Town.Then, he makes the wine in a small converted shed.

French Wine - Wines of Alsace
Chenin Blanc wines from the Loire can be dry, sweet, sparkling, or still. Regardless of style, the wine always has a streak of bright acidity.

Chilean Wine
The Maipo region of Chile produces some of the best Cabernet Sauvignons in the country. It's the word to watch for on labels when reaching for this variety.
