Red table wine from Portugal.  $3.98 at Bottle King.  As good as the expensive foo-foo wines with the quirky labels.  (So I'm a cheap date, but the wine's still good)

Try the Layer Cake line.  There's a Cab, Shiraz, Pinot Noir, and Zinfandel.

Estancia makes a good Cabernet, as does Silverado Vineyards.

I drink whites only rarely, and I my favorite there is Clos du Bois.

For white, I've grown fond of Due Uve ("two grapes") which is a really nice blend of Pinot Grigio and Sauvignon Blanc grapes.  I can get it here for 14.99 a bottle--the link here shows it for 25 bucks, but I've never seen it for that much around here.  Its a really nice, non-headachy wine.

I just had a nice Pinor Noir recently-Wild Horse-which I have since given as a birthday gift.  It runs here about 18-19 bucks a bottle.  Just excellent though, not as heavy and full-bodied as a Cabernet.  Nice in summer!

Okay, one more favorite that you can only get by delivery:  Sattui Family Red.  I go in with other folks in my condo community-divvying up a case once in awhile.

Okay, and for volume, the Black Box brand of boxed wines is actually very good.

I'll second the Estancia - I don't drink wine regularly, but a friend got me a bottle & I really enjoyed it.

I like Kendall Jackson's cab.  It's now about $20-$22. 

J.Lohr also has a nice dry cab for about the same price range.

If price were no object, I'd like a Pommard cab.

I like the Clos du Bois as well! Their Champagne is also very good.
I haven't tried the Layer Cake.. I had a Cakebread chard a while back, but not enough to spend money on it.

Estancia and Silverado, I have not tried either.. I will make a note on those! I love Cabs!

Those 2 links sound great!
The wild horse is Pinot Noir is quite good too. I had forgotten about that one!

I have both of those ( KJ and JL) in my wine credenza they are staples!
I haven't tried the Pommard and sounds like I do not want to unless someone else is paying..LOL

If any of you live near a Total Wine store a brand they carry exclusively is Cardiff, at least out here it is.. It is very inexpensive, maybe $7-10 a bottle. The Cab is quite good, especially for a big  party and no headaches. 

Another good wine is Avenel cab, it runs between $27-32 a bottle depending on the store.

A good white is the Louis Jadot 2008 Pouilly Fuisse.

I am getting off topic though..LOL

I love trying different wines so that is why I want to hear what everyone likes....


OH and for FAMOUSDAY.. If you say strawberry Boones Farm, I am banning you....LMAO :silly: :silly:

I forgot about J. Lohr!   They have a wonderful Chardonnay too--I can find it here for around 11 bucks, but it tastes like a higher level version.  I'm not big on Chardonnay for the most part though.  It hits me too hard, and with too much of a headache.

I know this is about wine, but I picked up some rather nice (albeit stronger) libations while cruising the Caribbean two weeks ago...I highly recommend either to those with discerning tastes:



Yes...I am partial to rum.

Then, I ran across this odd ball, and I've become a fan.
