Red or white, what's your style?
Sommelier I am not, but I do know what I like the taste of (and what I want to pour down the sink drain). And this has changed over the years. I used to be 100% chardonnay -- ew, I don't like it these days. But hook me up with a sauvignon blanc -- and if you really love me, from New Zealand -- and I am a happy girl.
And I do love a red too! I used to be strictly cabernet but now I'll enjoy pretty much any red you put in front of me, as long as it's not jammy-sweet.
Two of my favorite sauvignon blancs now are Nobilo and Monkey Bay. They will not break the bank at $8-12 but they are quite tasty, in my opinion.
So here are some questions for you:
+ Red, white, or equal opportunity sipper?
+ What is your favorite economical wine - $12 or less in price?
+ If you want to share ... how many nights a week do you like to enjoy a glass?
