In case you haven't heard, I enjoy a glass or three of wine. I don't think I have a favorite kind, it really depends on my moods. Lately I have been in a Chardonnay mood. Some of my favorites are Fat Bastard, Estancia, Robert Mondovi. I enjoy a dry oaky chardonnay with hints of citrus (maybe, really I just drink it). I like Pinot Grigio occasionally, but they tend to be lighter and sweeter and I haven't been on a sweet wine kick in quite a while.
However, as the weather turns chilly my taste turns to bolder flavors. I enjoy a bold Cabernet, one of my favorites being Estancia. I like Merlot, but it has to be a really good one because a basic Merlot tastes like sweat socks. At this point I should mention that I have never sucked on sweat socks, but if I did, I imagine it would taste like a crappy Merlot. Rombauer has a good one though if you like them.
Pinot Noir is a good basic red, usually pretty light. My favorite is Sock Eye.
In Vino Veritas!
