Which is your favorite wine?

I am always looking to try something new. Which wines are your favorites?

I am fond of the wines from Courtney Benham, both the Courtney Benham label and the Martin Ray label, and the Seghesio wines.

It's all about Manischewitz Blackberry wine and Stella Rosa from San Antonio Winery. Both are best severed chilled.

Don't drink wine much, but when I do I'll usually go for a Shiraz if I'm chilling... or a Bordeaux if I'm eating a nice meal.

...mostly.

Barefoot reds. $6 at the Walmart and they even have a cork.

I'm a big cabernet fan and this is what I have at all times in the wine rack.

BV Georges de Latour 06

Grgich Hills 05

Provenance 06

Sterling Reserves

And for everyday drinks I have a few bottles of Louis Martini cabs sitting around.

For a DD (Daily drinker) I like J. Lohr Seven Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon. Cost between $11-$14 per bottle and IMO is unmatched for the $$$

If you want to try something new...try out some Spanish wines...look for the Tempranillo grape versions..they are excellent.

I usually drink CS/Malbecs from Chile, Arg and France.

The barefoot is incredible for the price. Excellent red table wine versus a blush.

Anything from David Arthur but my favorite is their Elevation which is a nice cab. Not that I'm into esthetics when it comes to wine but the bottle the the Elevation comes in is awesome... as heavy as a tank, I love it. I have not met a David Arthur wine that I did not love.
