My dh drinks red (I'm allergic :( ) and he loves the Robert Mondavi Cabernet Sauvingon 2002. Also, "Barefoot" Cab is good, he says (3 gold medals, I believe) and I love their white zin (this I can drink :) )

I also love muscats of any sort - Trader Joe's has a surprisingly wonderful one, made in Paso Robles.


hey mud - I've visited Chateau St. Michel - quite pretty (& yum!)

We just drank a bottle of Augusto from Viansa Winery in Napa Valley - it was EXCELLENT!!!! Nice full body - can hold up against some strong food flavors. Holds up best against a really bad though! LOL

Prindelo by this same winery is another excellent choice and less expensive. It's a wonderfully balanced wine.

Hahn's Meritage is really inexpesive - buy it while it is - it WILL go up! Excellent wine.

For true Champagne 1999 Diebolt-Vallois - Fleur de Passion is excellent. It's made the old-fashioned way - and should be stored appropriately - 50°F to 58°F - but since I have no way of keeping it stored "perfectly" I'll just have to drink them Christmas morning! :oops:
