Two of my favorite red wines

The wife and I went to the Ozarks a couple of years ago and toured the Stone Hill Winery. While the tour was typical run of the mill the wine was fantastic! The two reds that we absolutely fell in love with we now buy by the case and have them shipped to us. Since Indiana is a dry ship state (no alcoholic beverages can be shipped here unless you have a liquor license) we have it shipped to the wife's office in Chicago. She always comes back with 11 out of 12 bottles.

One red wine is called Hermansberger. It is a dry, fruity, oakey blend that goes great with pizza.

The other is called Norton. It is similar to the Hermansberger but it's a bit more spicey. This wine goes great with red meats and especially lamb.

My favorite wine is Port. I really like Warre's Porto but it is more than I like to pay.

I'm sure it will be helpful to some.. I just meant that I knew nothing about wine... or typing either from the looks of things.

Do you prefer vintage style or tawny style ports?

I've always been of the opinion that good wine is a matter of taste, not price tag. One of my favorite drops is McGuigan Black Label, (The Flavor of Austalia!) and its not a wallet breaker. But maybe I like it more so because its taste good and I'm a tight wad with my money.

More money doesn't always mean better quality, why, some of the best quality *** I've had has been free!
