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.

Of course, we haven't learned crap, and have pretty much stayed with the one wine we know we like. We have no idea how to taste or describe a wine to this day.

come on, grow a set and try something that doesn't taste like sugar...riesling has a place, as a dessert wine...

i'm just giving you a hard time, if you like riesling, go to berbiglia anywhere in KC and grab some pirtle's mead...it's made at a winery up in weston, MO..

sweet and strong; a bottle or two will get you absolutely wasted
mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm......

Sideways has had an impact. I belong to a wine club and get a couple of bottles delivered every two months. We recently received this note with our shipment.

" Some club members have phoned or e-mailed us, asking when we will feature one or our fine Pinot Noirs in our wine club. Honestly, we wish we could, the the quick answer is, blame it on the movie "Sideways". So much interest has peaked in this alluring varietal that demand is at an all time high..."

I too am trying to learn more and slowly doing so. Being a member of a wine club is starting to increase my knowledge. They send you two bottles ( a red and a white ) every other months with a write up on each one. It is a neat way to learn more about wine. Mine is a lower end deal, around $30-$35 including delivery.

Admittedly, I'm a pussy when it comes to wine. I hate the dry wines. I much prefer the sweet ones that I can gulp down. I suppose it's like any liquor, though... it's about getting a taste for it.

That's a great idea, and I think I may try it. What is the one you belong to... and is it somewhere online that I can look it up? Thanks.

Yes, you can look it up on the internet. Steele Wines.
http://www.steelewines.com/index.html

It is a winery I stopped at and enjoyed the wine. I have only gotten 2 shipments, so I can not say I recommend it. It has worked so far, though. The good thing is it is free to join and you can contact them at any time to cancel. There are lots of winery out there offering all kinds of different wine club memberships.

Ah-ha! It's called Adam Puchta Vignoles. It has a very sweet taste to it.

Admittedly, I am much more of a beer guy than I am a wine guy. But I found this one to be good.

My favorite is German Spatlese in the classic style, either from the Jakob Demmer or Schlink-Haus wineries. It's usually under 10 dollars a bottle.

I don't care for sweet wines, but my wife apparently does. She came home from a wine party and told me about this german "ice wine" that she'd tasted. She said it was the best wine she'd ever tasted so she ordered a bottle even though it cost around $50 (much more than we normally pay for a bottle of wine). When it was delivered, she was surprised to find out that the bottle was tiny, lol. It was about half the size of a normal wine bottle. It was OK, but since I don't even like sweet wines I can't recommend spending that kind of jack on it.

I have it set up to where i read the most recent post first.

They also have an Orange Hurricane and several other varieties. What can I say? It may sound weird, but sometimes it's fun to go out and buy some really cheap wine and watch movies.
