Default Wine?

Do you drink wine?
What's your flavor?

I prefer dry reds. Things like Rioja, Tuscans, Argentine, Chilean, etc.

Red wine, usually Zin's or Cab's. Usually under ~$12 a bottle. I'm cheap but there are a lot of good wines out there that are inexpensive.

I like sweet whites and dessert type wines like moscato and riesling. Growing up my family used to get together with all our close friends and everyone would make wine once a year it was a huge event. The wine we made was named Inzaladina and that name was the first 2 letters of every participating families name. We were great friends with the Magnanini's who own a vineyard right down the road in Wallkill, NY and we would do all the makings and everything right there. It was tons of fun and the wines were great. Now I was pretty young, but growing up in an Italian household I had a glass of wine with dinner since before I can remember. Well needless to say when I became a teenager me and my friends got into the reds and the vershnoot that were stored out in the barn and got pretty hammered. I got ridiculously sick and ever since then I cannot drink red wine(even blush makes me nauseaus lol)

I occasionally drink some whites but not often. Pinot Noir is my favorite but a lot depends on what we are eating. Spicy foods call for a good Chianti which runs about $12 and up. The cheap stuff is crap. Rufino does make some good stuff and there is a big difference. Also like Syrah/Shiroz and Merlot. We had company Tuesday and served a 2005 California Syrah which was very good. Everyone is producing Cabernet and they have gotten average. Easy to find a decent one under $10 but really good ones are expensive. My SIL is a wine snob and has some really expensive wines. He served me some very expensive wine and it did not taste any better to me. I like good wine but I am not a snob about it. I dont have a "developed pallet" according to him. When I run into one of the snobs I always think of the druggie on Taxi. He could tell you which farmer grew the pot and which field down to the row.

Reislings from the Mosel Valley of Germany.

I am more of a 'beer' guy, but do like a glass of vino occasionally, usually a mascato, moderately sweet. I have a good friend who likes the more expensive ($100+ a bottle) dry wines. He has served them to me and he gets REAL upset when I threaten to add some grape juice to sweeten it up and make it drinkable!

I prefer the heavy, dry red wine, like Bergundy. Bordeau isn't bad either.

"The Christian Brothers" California Bergundy is excellent for a low cost dinner wine.

For serving with fish or fowl, any good imported German Rhine or Mosel, or Beringer's white Zinfandel is hard to beat.

Japanese Plum wines are interesting every now and them for a change of pace.
