Wine

I am very hard to please when it comes to wine and I have said several times that I would make a list of the wines I taste and grade them after my own taste. So here is first list that I will try to update in the future. The grade is between 1 and 10.
Montecillo Crianza (nr 2643) Not too good. Tasted to much wine. 12.5% Grade: 4
Vin up Fragola (nr 12332) A sweet 4.5% italian sparkling strawberry wine. Very easy to drink but not a food wine. I enjoye drinking it a lot. Grade: 9
Chill Out Music Cabernet Sauvignon 2001 (nr 12098). Not very good wine. 14%. South Africa. Strong bitter taste. Not very easy to drink. Grade: 2
Primicia (nr 32410) A spanish 13% wine. I enjoyed this one very much, but I guess I have to try it again as it was the third bottle we opened that evening. Grade: 8
Château de Seguin (nr 3958) A french 12.5% wine with a soft taste, i.e. doesn’t taste to much. It was very easy to drink. Grade: 6
Jacob’s Creek Shiraz Cabernet (nr 2066) 13.5% wine from south Australia. Very good wine to the food (devil’s eggs). Easy to drink with a long after taste. Grade: 7

Books

Here is a quick update on what I have been reading recently.
My last update was for Executive Orders and after that I read two more Clancy books, Rainbow Six and The Bear and the Dragon. As always it is interesting to read Clancy’s geopolitical books. Most of the things Clancy write about has actually already happened (after he wrote the books though) but the last one is about was between China and Russia which hasn’t happened (yet ;-).
After my rather long Clancy period I decided I needed to read some other type of books for a while so I switched to Nick Hornby and How to be Good. I started reading this just when Johanna left me without any clue about what the books was really about. It started out very ”well” with an affair and then most of the book was about being married (with a fun twist though). Well worth reading. After that I started on About a Boy but stopped reading it 1/3 in as it matched the film to closely. I enjoyed the film very much (I really like Hugh Grant) and that obviously made me remember much from the movie.
A friend had just gotten a copy of Liza Marklund’s newest book, ”Den röda vargen.” It was very good and a fun thing was that much of it took place in my home town Luleå. I got caught with the story about the reporter Annika Bengtzon and I continued with another Liza Marklund book, ”The Bomber, Sprängaren”. That was followed by Liza Marklund’s ”Studio Sex”, which I finished today and I am continuing Liza Marklund’s ”Paradiset”.
