Mark I bet Silver Oak was a gateway wine for a lot of people.

Going to have a 2012 Merry Edwards RRV Pinot tonight. I've not had an ME in some time.

To higher end/more expensive wines, basically beyond stuff they bought at the supermarket.

I was joking.


@Piobaire
 Heard of Sandlands wine? Side production by the Turley winemaker. (Side production meaning they only made like 100 cases last year). Prices $20-30

Sandlands is awesome. The Chenin in particular is a wonderful wine. It's made like a white burg, really unusual. I've had most of what he makes and they've been solid across the board. Great values too.

Anybody know the wines from Bodegas Castaño?

I've had their Hercula Monastrell lately. Great QPR/daily drinker.

Thanks @Piobaire - a local rep is bringing the Hecula by next week. Certainly inexpensive.

Dark fruit, mild tannins, and quaffable is what I remember. I've still got a couple of 12s.

I posted about Dry Creek a couple days ago and found it at my local shop.  2013 on sale for $16.99  Going to buy a few.

Jcman, congrats on buying a few bottles of something you like. You should try a few different Zins now, both around the same price, and maybe a little more. Start expanding your tastes from where you've found a starting point that you like.

Thanks, just here for the discussion and ideas.  I have saved some (through my phone app) of others I've liked.  Earthquake and Gamba are two more.  Apparently I really only drink wine with grilled meats (hence a lot of Zins)

Earthquake by Michael David? I can have that, but only when I'm really in the mood. It's just so in your face

If that's the case try some Riojas. For $20 you can get into a nice drinking one.
