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.

The Zin is very good, the merlot is so-so, I don't particularly care for chardonnay's so I haven't had it, but the claret is

I hate to admit this. I really, really do. But that was pretty clever, Mr. Taco John.

I really don't have a favorite

If I'm just drinking a glass, I really enjoy a good Merlot, but for meals I would rather drink a Chardonnay

Um ... it was outside of / near KC somewhere, Mr. Skip Towne ... on the MO side ... I can't remember where, exactly.

It used to be an old trading post and homestead at an orchard as I recall. Then, they turned into a restaurant. They served cool apple cider in the foyer and had little guys walk around with fresh, hot apple muffins right out of the oven. Nice menu, excellent wine list.

I really liked the place and would enjoy taking the beautiful, elegant, and witty Mrs. Fax there someday if it's still there. And I can find it again.

Our standard Pinot Noir is Nobilo Icon, very good value for around $15 a bottle.

We used to keep a bottle of Kendall Jackson Chardonay in the fidge, but good Chardonays under $15 a bottle are easy to find , so we've been exploring a broader range.

With wine, I generally prefer to try a different bottle every time. There have been exceptions. A couple years ago we probably drank a case of Allegrini Palazzo della Torre over a period of 6 mos. It was a little above your stipullated price point, but any time we were having Italian, it was irresistable.

I'm partial to Pinot Noir. My wife likes an Australian Shiraz.

We don't drink a lot of white, but I'd agree with the Pinot Grigio assessment, just not too dry.

Googled the mother.

Stephenson's Old Apple Farm Restaurant
16401 E US Hwy 40
Kansas City, MO 64136-1197
(816) 373-5400

Critiques from the web:

You want a perfect meal? Come to Stephensons. In 25 years of visits, they've been great, but now with the demise of the local steakhouses in quality and reliability, Stephensons remains perfect. Never a bad meal. The beef brisket is to die for along with the horseradish sauce, the butter-cream chicken, steaks, seafood, and of course, the apple-fritters and green rice caserole. Even the ranch dressing is perfect. All perfect, every time. Super service usually but never less than good.

Come starved so they can roll you out afterwards!

This has to be the BEST restaurant in the USA, bar none and I've eaten at some of the truly top-ranked restaurants of the USA. None better than Stephensons.

Sinking down in the sofa comfort food specialists!
The chicken falls onto your fork. The muffins and fritters reminded me that I should go see my grandmother more often.

The flavors all coincide to create an overall dining effect that I consider satisfying to all senses.
