I'm far from an expert, but I like The Wine House on Cotner in West LA and K & L Wines in Hollywood. Both are pretty big with good selections (at least by my relatively unsophisticated standards) and good customer service.

I enjoy browsing for wine and spirits at Wally's on Westwood Blvd as well, but they're smaller and pricier than Wine House (which is 5-10 minutes away).

I can vouch for K&L as a website customer. They also seem to get a lot of Kermit Lynch stuff which I always enjoy.

DomaineLA or Lou's wine shop are by the far the best for "natural" wines

I recommend Hitimes Wine in Newport. Awesome.

Any ideas?
Pairing with music? Is this a gag? Well, I know both pieces, so what the hell.

I assume you mean the Brahms AFO? Kinda boisterous for white, no? I would try for a high-end P-F or Macon. Ferret is a great producer. Nice wines in the $40-$50 range. As for a red, I have really liked Lucien Boillot in that range. Zacky's has several at the village level from 2006-2007-2008 that are drinkable now.

P-F = Pouilly Fuisse?

Lucien Boillot is quite expensive. The 2006 is around $100

Lucien Boillot is a Domaine and like most such in Burgundy, produces several different wines at various price points. The Village level wines start under $50 and go up to about $70. Premier Crus start higher than that.

Is this ready to drink yet? What to expect?

So much dill. Not bad though. Also I got a job at a really good wine and spirits distributor this week. I'm pretty excited, even though I'm just running errands basically. Getting paid to drink wine is a great feeling.

Dill is usually associated with American oak.
