    There are some GREAT New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc's out there! I bet you're able to get the best of them being so close.

    We get a very large selection here, and are quite spoilt if NZ wines are to your taste.... but it's nothing compared to what we get when we visit the South Island of NZ.. The stuff there is amazing!

    Does Port count? I've been enjoying a glass or two of Rumbalara Tawny port from Rumbalara Wines (a local place a few hours drive from here)

    I've always found it to be excellent - they also make a Chardonnay that I don't believe (or at least rarely) goes through malolactic fermentation - a great pairing with oysters. I also love their Zin ...

    Popped the cork on a 2006 Peju Provence. This is a blended red from the Napa area. Really delightful wine. Nice earthy fruit taste with a hint of chocolate and cinnamon.
    Often I am forced to deal with the fact that I prefer bourbon over dealing with facts.

    Not enough of them. Marques de Caceres Rioja was the last one I had...and it is wonderful.

    Always loved and preferred the Montelena cabs over their old school competitors. The '02 Napa vintage was awfully special so that was some good drinking for sutton. I had bunkered a few of their non estate '02 cabs but they're gone now . For those whiskey drinkers that don't know it was their Chardonnay that was famous for taking first in in the 1976 Judgment in Paris competition and resulted in a great book and bad movie.

    I've now fallen so hard for whiskey that budget wine is just fine to get me through dinner (and onto whiskey ) so that I rarely spend more than $10 for a bottle.
