    I drink cabs almost exclusively.

    Pinot Noir sometimes.

    For my "regular basis" wine I usually just get Cavit, Woodbridge, Beringer, etc. Because they're almost always under $20 for the big bottle.

    But I often browse the wine section and just pick something that looks good.
    As of late I've had...

    from Napa Valley. I had the Cabernet.

    This I bought just for the bottle, but it turned out to be pretty good.

    This is another I like.
    It's French. It's a Shiraz but I tried it after reading the description which made it sound more like a Cab. And it is indeed more like that. It's really dark and full-bodied. Dry.

    It is!

    This is a really cheap wine I found in KS. No cork even. But I got it for the bottle, which now decorates my kitchen...

    This one was there too, but I HATE Riesling.
    I'll probably get it eventually though just for the bottle...

    I keep some bottles too. Just for decoration and shit. I actually just went to my kitchen to see what I have and what I remember liking.

    I remember liking this a lot. I think it's Napa as well...

    You have a wine fridge in your bedroom?? :nutz:

    I've had some NY wines and I definitely liked them.
    Also there are some good ones from the North coast of Ohio, believe it or not.
    I had both at this little winery near Cleveland.

    There are actually a few wineries near me that I've been meaning to check out. I don't know why I never have because I'm sure they'd be good. I don't know where you live but here the climate is a LOT like Northern California.

    I haven't had good luck with Chilean wines. Not sure why. I've only tried a couple but they always seem syrupy to me and they give me a headache.
