What's your favorite wine?

For us wine drinkers, I'm curious about your favorite "drinking" wine (as in, something uner $15 a bottle).

I'm partial to the 2002 Hill of Gold Shiraz (Rosemont Estates) and the 2002 Coppola Premium Claret. Right now, I'm drinking a 2003 Coppola Zin.

Anything by Patricia Green (should be able to find this around $20)
Clos Pegase (probably gonna be in the $30-40 price range).

I probably could give you a few more reccomends, but I'd have to check tasting notes at home (I'm guessing I have notes on a few from $15-20; I know there are a couple I've liked). Send me a smoke if you'd like those later.
thanks for the leads, I'll pop for a bottle one of these days....it's the one grape I'm not familiar with mostly for the $$ reason you mentioned...I always remember some wine show I saw - had Alan Alda going around to wineries and discussing the finer points of wine making etc..- and he asked a wine maker what his favorite grape was and the guy said without hesistating "pinot noir"...i've been curious ever since...

My favorite wine is the one the Colts do to the League Office anytime that something doesn't go their way. The D was to rough with our receivers, an injury should count as a timeout, the field wasn't in perfect shape. Whaaaaaaa, Whaaaaaa.

But I digress.

I'm not a huge wine drinker, but I do like having it when I am with friends durring the holidays, or a nice dinner, or something along those lines. I perfer red over white and usually go with a nice Cab.

But the wine that really goes along way is "Four Buck Chuck" If we are having a get together with my knucklehead friends we'll go and graba case of it.

If you've had Burgundy (or a good champagne) you've had Pinot Noir. It's a notoriously fickle grape to grow, but part of the pricing can also be blamed on popularity gained by the movie "Sideways."

Good reasonable priced wines:

Cabernet - Raymond Vinyards - R Collection.
Riesling - Clean Slate Reisling. There's also a decent Riesling called Petals that sells for around $7.00.

I had a decent Pinot Noir called Hinman's or something like that (under $20).

My recommendation would be that once you find a wine you like stick with it, or if you want to change stick with the same type from the same region.

For decent Pinot at a good price, look for a red wine with 'Bourgogne' on the label, and not a lot of other French nomenclature. Red Bourgogne is 'basic' or generic Burgundy and made from Pinot Noir. The Louis Jadot or Drohin LaForet that I buy usually runs $12-$18. If you like this (and you probably will)...the price for better Burgundy goes straight up from here. I stay with these 'generic' burgundies in this price range, but you may have lotsa moola. Good for you!
For US Pinot - Sideways ruined it for us. I visit Oregon often enough that I have a few sentimental favorite Pinot's from there (Adelsheim, Domaine Drohin) but unless it's a celebration bottle I stick with Bridgeview 'Blue moon' Pinot from Oregon or Gallo of Sonoma Pinot from California. I know, Gallo is the evil empire and all that. But this is pretty good juice for the dinero.

One of my other favorites, which I have enjoyed a lot is Freemark Abbey. I drink primarily cabs, and this is incredible but a little pricey.

Franciscan Oakville Estates is a very nice Cab with an obvious Oaky taste for just around $20.
The On The Edge wines are good. A little pricey. The Jean Louis Vermeil is their flagship. They are proud of it at about $60/bottle. It is good though.

I make my own wines and I especially like the fruit wines I have made in the past. I made Peach and Blackberry (from the fruit I grew) a year ago and they are just now getting REALLY smooth. I have 5 gallons of Strawberry that has been sitting on its own lees for 3 months and will transfer it to a new carboy with just the right amount of sugar tomorrow. Then a week or 2 before bottling. In 6 months or so, WOOHOO!

Nobilo from New Zeland is good at under $20 a bottle.

Angeline is also a pretty good bottle under $15.

I think she has been paying $31-$35 a bottle for the cabs she has been giving me. I will have to drop a hint about the Jean Louis Vermeil this year. I am continually impressed at a lot of cabs once they reach that magic 7th year in the bottle.
