Not sure of there is already a WINE thread on here so I thought I'd start one.

Who drinks wine on here and what do you like?

I like Sumner Crest Robertson King and Stonehaus Davenport RED for sweeter red wines.

Stonehaus Muscidine for sweet white wine.

Don't really have a special dry red wine.

Any favorite wineries?

Any favorite types of wine?

Don't know much about wine. I'll get a bottle maybe once a month, I usually go for a cab sauv or something like that. $10-15 price range, doesn't lead me wrong.

Best wine I've had is an '82 Chateau Margaux. Once in a lifetime experience, and amazing.

Normal weeknight wines are limited to a bunch of Trader Joe's wines; for special occasions, I'll break out the Proprietary Red from Dick Vermeil's winery.

Big Zins are the real deal. St Francis Old Vines is very good, most years.

For Cab, you can't go wrong with Rombauer.

Sweet wine is for teenagers.

Wine is my main drink. Reds almost exclusively in the 12-20 range.

Zins, Cabs, Merlots are the main stays.

Costco is a good place to buy.

Been loving this lately



this is another good Zin

No Cost CO near me and we have a no liquor law in grocery stores such as Trader Joes in TN--as of now.

This law is changing though I heard.

The zinfandel above...describe its taste so I know of it's something I may like.

Thanks.

I'm a big fan of Bordeaux wines and Malbecs. If I'm drinking white, I always have to go with a good Portuguese vinho verde, which usually is about $7 a bottle and probably one of the best whites that I have ever found (especially for the price)
