3) Fetzer Gewurtztraminer. I swear. It was one of the first wines I ever bought. Love it with Asian, anything sausage-y and sweet. Thanksgiving, too.
4) Ch. Mont-Redon CdP. Love it so much.



The "Friendly" Gruner makes me happy, always, too.

I've had this Montepulciano quite a few times and always find it delicious. Medium bodied red. Just enough fruit, not too spicy or complex. It's about 8 bucks at my neighborhood market. Thumbs up.

^^ That stuff is good, maybe the best cheap wine out there.

Montepulciano d'Abruzzo is good stuff, I especially like it in the summer.

I love the floral qualities of Cabernet Franc. It's such an underrated grape by itself. The Chinons of France are good, but they don't hit my "pleasure center" like the California varietal does.

It is usually 2 for 14 here in Boston. Keeps her away from my good stuff when I am not home.

THere's some good stuff coming from the really rustic-- or, at least, undiscovered by wine drinkers-- parts of Italy. Sicily and the boot region are particularly good these days for friendly, large, cheap reds.

I like to try different aglianicos whenever I can. The problem is that they are hard to find and the one I like - Elena Fucci's Titolo is ~40. Would be open to some suggestions if anyone else likes this stuff. Should mention the most popular one I see is the Feudi di San Gregorio.

I had a bottle of Trimbach 2008 Riesling reserve. I could have had three. What a great wine.

Trimbach is pure win.
