Many years ago, there was a yellowish wine called Muscatel. (I think it's properly classified as a white wine, but all that I am familiar with was light yellow)

It was slightly sweet, and made a great desert wine. Caution was needed in drinking it, however, because it was "fortified." (IOW, brandy made from the wine was added back to the wine to increase alcohol content.) IIRC, it ran 20+ percent alcohol.

It was truly delicious when served very cold on a warm evening. In small quantity.

This is my weakness. I have a bottle of German wine in my fridge that was worth all $30 I paid for it.

You are a rare one Dr. A man who drinks scotch and bourbon. Most of us drink one or the other. I do like your scotch collection though!

I like reds, though will drink a Chardonnay now and again. Though I like the little more pricey Chards. I like La Crema, and ZD. Both are very smooth. The La Crema will run about $20 a bottle in the big box stores, and the ZD can be even higher. I rarely buy either, but once in a while depending on what is for dinner I splurge.

I like Washington state reds, like Flying Fish Merlot, Columbia House and a few others. Or Cabs from the Russian River in Kalifornia. They are generally moderatly priced in the $10 to $15 a bottle range.

Here is my Favorite

Clos Du Bois North Coast Merlot.
I rotate it for Gentleman Jack on the rocks for my evening's relaxation watching TV or sitting on the Porch watching the wildlife!
It breaks up the monotony of just having one favorite drink! And I enjoy both!

Happy Camper Chardonnay is an oaky white, not to sweet. It pairs very well with a Mango Habanero cheddar from whole foods!

Lambic is good stuff: apricot and peach are my faves.
