Wouldn’t it be interesting to hear the opinions, of those who have expressed red wine preferences on this thread, as to their thoughts on the ideal temperature of a glass of dry red wine?

For me, it would be about 65 degrees F.

Yeah, about 60 on the low end to 65 at the highest. If a red feels warm I like to put it in the fridge for half an hour or so.

2001 Cabernet Sauvignon

2001 Cabernets are going to be very pricy, IF (and that's a huuuge "if") you can find them. That said, there are many excellent California Cabernets out there from more recent vintages that you would probably enjoy.

Because I am not at all familiar with this brand, I have no idea of its style, so I can't suggest specific substitutes. A wine merchant might be able to suggest similar Monterey Cabs.

I'm guessing that means 2001 was an exceptional year?

lol...and not to get my hopes up, unless I want to spend an arm and a leg?

Depends on my mood and what I spent on the wine. Sometimes room temp other times I'll drop a cube in there.

but what do you consider "room temp?" Ice cubes water down the wine.
