3 Blind Moose, Mirasou, Ravenswood. Blind Moose cork cracks me up every time I read it. If I'm shopping for a $10-20 bottle, I usually just label shop. I also keep a wine diary, it's just as good as a recipie book.

Cabernet Sauvignon is my favorite wine, Caine. I wonder if I can get the one you're recommending in my area.

Bear in mind, I live in a very rural area where daylight has to be piped in.

My birthday's coming up, maybe I'll put this on my list for Buck to get me.

I buy mine at a warehouse/restaurant supply store called Smart & Final for around $7.50, with a 15% discount if I buy a case (12 bottles) of wines, any kind. I have also seen it at Trader Joe's, but it was much more expensive, like maybe $12.75 or so.

I'm so jealous, Caine. We live in, as I said, a very rural area. Our biggest retailers are Sam's Club and Wal-Mart. No such thing as Trader Joe's (I wish.). Moved here from the Washington, D.C. area where so many things were easily available. Oh, well, that's life.

Well I found one the other day. I decided to try it because it was from Texas and you know how proud us Texans are. But dang it was actually good. It's Llano blush.

Any number of wines from the Côtes de Bordeaux (Côtes de Blaye, Côtes de Bourg, Premières Côtes de Bordeaux, Côtes de Francs and, especially - to me - Côtes de Castillon.

May people think, mistakenly, that Bordeaux is expensive. This doesn't stand up to scrutiny. There are plenty of good wines out there in the price bracket described.

Best regards,
Alex R.

2 bottles of Taylors Port for under 10$!!!

Great wine, good finish and smooth all the way, plus a winery with a great history and heritage....can't beat the price either! (Note...Somewhat strong as far as buzz, I only recommend a glass!)
