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:
