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.

I tried one with a steak a few nights ago at Longhorn, can't remember who makes it, but it was called "Collage". A Nice little blend of Cabernet and Merlot that goes great with a bloody slab of beef.


Also, for those that appreciate Australian table wines:

A lot of people in this country pooh-pooh Australian table wines. This is a pity as many fine Australian wines appeal not only to the Australian palate but also to the cognoscenti of Great Britain.

Black Stump Bordeaux is rightly praised as a peppermint flavoured Burgundy, whilst a good Sydney Syrup can rank with any of the world's best sugary wines.

Château Blue, too, has won many prizes; not least for its taste, and its lingering afterburn.

Old Smokey 1968 has been compared favourably to a Welsh claret, whilst the Australian Wino Society thoroughly recommends a 1970 Coq du Rod Laver, which, believe me, has a kick on it like a mule: 8 bottles of this and you're really finished. At the opening of the Sydney Bridge Club, they were fishing them out of the main sewers every half an hour.

Of the sparkling wines, the most famous is Perth Pink. This is a bottle with a message in, and the message is 'beware'. This is not a wine for drinking, this is a wine for laying down and avoiding.

Another good fighting wine is Melbourne Old-and-Yellow, which is particularly heavy and should be used only for hand-to-hand combat.

Quite the reverse is true of Château Chunder, which is an appellation contrôlée, specially grown for those keen on regurgitation; a fine wine which really opens up the sluices at both ends.

Real emetic fans will also go for a Hobart Muddy, and a prize winning Cuivre Reserve Château Bottled Nuit San Wogga Wogga, which has a bouquet like an aborigine's armpit.

Casa Lapostolle Cabernet Sauvignon has been our favorite for quite a while now.

Currently the 2002 vintage is one of Wine Enthusiasts best values, you can generally get it for under $10.

On our Honeymoon(1996 in Bermuda), Casa Lapostolle was the featured wine at our resort. Since then we have always kept at least one bottle in reserve at home.

For good inexpensive reds, it is hard to go wrong with Chilean or Austrailian wines.

Things change, I suppose. But, I have good memories. It may have had something to do with the girl I took there the last time.

I'm sorry you had a bad experience and will petition them immediately for compensation.

I misread your post as your current review of the place. I understand it used to be a pretty incredible place, which is why I was looking forward to trying them. Food gets a solid B. Ambiance = F- Service = D

Sometimes you get the feeling a restaurant is having a bad day and that you should give them another opportunity. I didn't experience that at all that day. It was horrible. They knew it and they didn't care. They offered free dessert. Uh - thanks, but no. We couldn't wait to leave.

I'm not a big wine guy... so it doesn't take much to make me happy. the "3 buck chuck" at Trader Joe's tastes just as good as any $20 bottle of wine from the grocery/liquor store I've ever had.

You can buy it in restuarants from what I hear. It's kind of expensive.

Tempranillo or Rioja for inexpensive reds.

Amarone if I'm feeling rich.
