I like this one - it's made in CA, and can be found for about $10/bottle in most CA supermarkets.

Like Dawg said, maybe we can nudge Steve Kroll out of hiding for just this thread. Would not surprise me if he has a whole lot of info about California wines.

Since you don't see your sis too often, I bet you guys will have a lot of fun even if you were drinking Kool-aide.

Cheryl, did you notice that the article was published in April, 2004? I bet if any of those wines are still available they won't be sold at those prices.

Oh, sheesh, CG - I never even noticed the date! Thanks for noticing that. Yeah, pretty sure those aren't today's prices!

I should have mentioned, extra points for organic wine. It also helps if it travels well, since it will have to go in her suitcase.
Plonk made me think of Rumpole of the Bailey!

Rumpole was always talking about plonk, Chateau Thames Embankment, 2-a-bottleclaret, so I set out to find an American version of Claret.

I found this Francis Coppola, Diamond Collection, 2010 Black Label Claret, not bad!

Keep in mind I know nothing about wine, I just drink what tastes good to me!

My brother knows Francis Coppola, and toured his winery. He thought the Coppola wines were very good.

I really like this wine. I've been drinking it for years. It's consistently good.

"Rompole of the Bailey" reminded me of something I might ask her to bring, Rompope. Stirling brought some back from California and it was very nice. I don't know if that is considered liqueur or hard liquor.

Glad to read that someone we know likes it.
