    i do like using it for beef stew though. i see it in the same light as soy sauce - great for flavoring but you wouldn't want to drink it by itself.

    i didn't even realize ethanol had a taste before i looked it up - apparently it does for some people. i guess my combination of genetics plus being a supertaster means i'm never going to experience what it's like to get flat out drunk.

    which reminds me - what type of wine is the best for making beef stew anyways?
    Did you just compare soysauce to wine...?

    Also, there are many wines you can use for beef stew, but I'd probably grab a Gammay for a nice stew or a cheaper Syrah or Sangiovese for an average one. It's just personal taste, try and decide.

    2015 Koenig Alsatian Gewurtztraminer.

    "Exuberant" fruit is spot on.

    I have had both the 2015 and now 2016 of this, and they are quite different. The 2016 is much less dry and less intense/exuberant as a result. Personally enjoyed the 2016 more, but that was my taste. Friend enjoyed the sharpness of the 2015 more.

    Dr. Konstantin Frank Semi-Dry 2016

    As a semi-dry at 11.5%, I have had much drier at nearly the same abv. Not to say that is a bad thing as this was great, but it was more a tad more semi-sweet to me than full on semi-dry.
    Chateau Ste Michelle or Pacific Rim J Rieslings feels slightly more dry by comparison and Kungfu Girl would feel much drier (just picking random ones that come to mind). Interested in trying the Konstantin Dry as the Finger Lakes are great.
