As a Tolerant Vinotype, you crave intensity and lots of flavor and can’t quite understand how other people drink “wimpy” wines, or coffee for that matter.

People (like your spouse, roommate or people riding with you in a car) will often complain that you turn the TV or stereo up too loud and fight with you over the thermostat setting – you want it way too cold. You also tend to be decisive and a more linear thinker.

Your wine preferences point to rich, very intensely flavored whites and especially full-bodied reds.

Wines you are prone to love include oaky, full-bodied Chardonnay and/or Viognier for whites with big Zinfandels and Cabernet Sauvignon for your mainstay reds with Syrah and possibly Merlot or Pinot Noir in the mix if they are really full-bodied examples.

To find recipes that pair well with wines you may enjoy, type “tolerant” in the search bar to the right.
