Polls #5 & #6 Results

Polls #5 & #6 have now ended.

The Poll #5 question was: Would you rather have a California Cabernet Sauvignon or a French Bordeaux? This was a close vote, with California inching out France in a 6 to 5 vote. Would California win the other Poll as well?

The Poll #6 question was: Would you rather have a California Pinot Noir or a French Burgundy? This time France seized a commanding victory against California in an 8 to 3 vote.

There are curious results, a division of New and Old World. For Cabernet, people preferred a New World style, a fruitier, bolder, higher alcohol wine. Yet for Pinot, people preferred the more subtle Old World style.

For our next poll, let us return to Food.

Poll #7: If you dine out, what type of entree do you usually order? Steak, seafood, poultry?

If I could point out, the first question pitted a varietal against a blend. Maybe asking for a decision between Meritage and Bordeaux would have been more apples to apples? (I chose Cabernet)
