I really enjoy a good beer, but the last few years I've been drinking more and more red wine.  Heart healthy, and all around better for you than beer. 

For the most part I enjoy a dark, dry, red wine.  That said, King Estate from Oregon has the best Pinot Noir I've had to date.  Anyone else have any favorites?  Dave, I know you can add to the list!

You do like your reds from Argentina FH!  

This is a new vino for me -  very nice!  

Dry, smooth, not overly fruity, with a bit of spice - liked it quite a bit.

Duckdog-

Red wine in general goes with beef.  

Pinot Noir, Merlot, or a Cab will work nice.  Which one?  Depends on the audience.  For folks that are newer to wine drinking, you may want to go with a sweeter red such as a Pinot Noir.  

For more seasoned folks, you may want to go with a Merlot, or a nice Cabernet Sauvignon. 

A nice Pinot is King Estate, price point is around $25.  For Merlot, Coppola Blue Label is nice, price point is around $18.  For Cab, Rodney Strong or Avalon is hard to beat.  Rodney is around $15, Avalon about the same.  

Let us know how it goes...

Need a pointer or two. We are putting on a dinner for 9 people. We are doing rib steaks, baby reds, and a fresh green salad. I am a brandy guy and need help with what wine to serve with dinner. Any ideals?
