    I want to try a good Pinot. Most of the ones I've had we're crap.

    I love Cabs too.

    I second that, especially their Napa Valley wines. The Napa wines are very expensive, though.

    I work with wines so Pinot ideally grows in a climate with hot days and cool nights to let the acids and tannins develop for optimum "balance". The Willamette Valley in Oregon as well as Napa/Sonoma will give you the best quality. I couldn't drop any labels offhand since I prefer rum myself. If your looking for a good whiskey this right here is really smoothe and worth a try. It's also out of Oregon and superb.

    This is the best because it is not too dry. $4 at Walmart.

    Walmart used to sell Oak Leaf Shiraz for $3, but I haven't seen it in months, I think they stopped making it.

    I tried Malbec and it was too dry. Like and extra dry Merlot.

    I used to like only Blush, Rose', and White Zinfandel. A friend used to serve white or red with dinner so now I like them all. My favorite white is Pinot Grigio it's not too dry, favorite red is Shiraz, again not too dry.

    Yeah I see those, and Pinot Grigio and Chardonnay and something called Sweet Red, but no more Shiraz.
