    A good shiraz, if you can find one, is a nice sexy wine as well, but bad shirazes abound unfortunatly. If you want to go french I'd suggest a bordeaux, and Italian I'd say nero d'avola. A good zinfandel (and NOT white) can be a lovely thing as well
    Speaking of zinfandel (not white ), have you tried Cigarzin?
    I'm not a wine expert at all, but I think it's one of the tastiest I've ever had.

    As far as whites go I can hang with a good gerwurztraminer, but that's about it.


    Franzia. You got me through high school.

    anything red and dry usually leaves the cockles of my heart happy- though I must say that spanish reds, argentine malbecs and chilean carmeneres make me especially delighted

    norton's riserva malbec 2005 is soo nice

    i can't stand sweet whites or zinfandels. pinot noir is too light bodied.

    the light reds i like are almost always italians.

    I have a nice bottle of 2006 Prunotto Dolcetto D'Alba ready to go for my Farewell to Philly dinner tomorrow.

    I tend to prefer fuller-bodied wines, but I'm game for anything. Pinots, cabs, malbecs... whatever. I like some Greek white wines, though. It so depends on the winery and year. *shrug*

    My favorite is sparkling wine. For the money, I'm a fan of Veuve Clicquot yellow label.

    Sweeter wines make me sad inside. The only one that's kind of fun is Banfi.

    For anyone in Houston, Austin, Dallas or Denver, I'd highly recommend Cru. It's this excellent wine bar with interesting flights. I order a flight or two and try a bunch of stuff when I go. And their cheese flights (mmm Humboldt Fog and Robiola Bosina) and three-cheese fondue with white truffle oil are amazing.


    I... suppose. Yeah!

    Just had a terrible merlot wine called "Red Rover"... It's probably the worst I've ever tasted. Seriously. Ewww!

    I actually had a visceral reaction to reading this! My ex-roommate is Greek and brought me back a Greek white that was probably the worst wine I've ever tasted. It tasted EXACTLY like a pine tree air freshener. I was subsequently told that I had not gotten a skunked bottle, but that it was actually supposed to taste like that.

    Veuve Clicquot yellow label is my favorite reasonably priced "champagne". Sparkling reds get a roll of the eyes from a lot of people, but I love Lambrusco.

    I like Canadian red ice wines, but only if I don't really think of them as wines. They're more like a liqueur or a dessert.

    May I suggest a pinot noir or a dry gewurztraminer for your thanksgiving meal?
