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.

So, when is your "friend" going to register on ChiefsPlanet?

I have a knack for identifying cheap wines. They're the ones that taste better.

While I seldom drink, I think I tend to like sweeter wines more often, and those are often the cheaper wines. Liebfraumilch springs to mind as one that I usually think is pretty good, and I think the critics rank most Liebfraumilchs between sputum and sweat.

Keith - Both Jerry's say Hi right back at you. There are only 2 vintages of the Jean Louis Vermiel on the market now. I bought both for my Dad and split it w/ my bro. It was a great gift as you wouldn't buy yourself a $55 bottle of wine but when someone else does it tastes good.

I just had a great $10.99 bottle of wine. They sell it at Whole Foods locally (not sure if yours carrys it.) It is a varietal. It is made by The Magnificent Wine Company in Walla Walla, WA. It is called House Wine. Says House Wine very big on the label.

The SF Chronicle has a wine section every Wed and often picks value wine's. They recently aggregated the '05 picks in a year end section. This was my favorite from all that I have tried from that.

This is really a fantastic tasting Shiraz. I have taken to the Craneford brand overall.

Tasting notes - Characters of spice and ripe berry fruit, primarily
raspberry and mulberry. The palate has firm,
grippy tannins that are balanced by the rich
concentration of fruit flavours. Basket pressed,
this wine has a smooth, well rounded, velvety
finish with an extended finish.

Oh, and here is a massive picture of the bottle.

G-B has some very nice stuff. I'm also fond of their Mountain Cuvee (around $20 per), especially this time of year. Pair it with a dish with sage and it's like having fall in a glass. I've got some of their 2003 Cab in the cellar that I've got high hopes for but probably won't hit it's stride for another 10-15 years.

As far as "drinking" wines, it depends on what mood I'm in and if I'm eating it with something or not. Spain and Chile are really producing some quality big reds for around $10-15 per. Root 1 Cab from Chile (around $12) I consider a phenomenal value. Ol' Red by Cosentino is a nice red blend I recently tried ($13). I've also liked Cline's old vine zin. Di Majo Norante's Ramitello (red blend, around $18) is great with tomato based dishes.

If you like big reds, Petit Sirah I've had in heavy rotation lately. Reasonably priced ones would be Concannon (around $13) and Guenoc's Lake County (around $17). Guenoc makes a multi-vineyard variety of this as well, but in my opinion, the Lake County is worth the extra $4 (great balance, inky color, velvety mouthfeel...great with lamb, as one of my friends put it "like drinking blueberry-vanilla-butter").

The wife and I had this suggested to us at Ruth's Chris over the summer.

It's fantastic. Easily my favorite wine.
