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!

Thought this looked interesting, and I enjoy bold wines, so I purchased a bottle. 

That said, stay away from this one, it is horrible - rivals 14 hands - just nasty.  

Exceedingly few red wines get poured down the drain at my house, but this was an easy choice - down the drain it went Stay away!

The Stag North Coast Cab. 

First time I’ve tried this vino. 

A very nice cab.  On the dryer side with some plum and a bit of spice at the end.  Liked it quite a bit.  

3.5 stars 

Should also mention that my wife didn’t care for it.  She thought it was too bold and it tasted like alcohol lol 

Not a beginner wine :)

Xray May like it!

Z Alexander Brown Uncaged Cab.

A fairly bold vino, very dry, and more tannic than smooth. 

Not a beginner wine...

I really like it, it’s a buy again 3.75 stars.

It’s ok SS, it’s safe to come out of the closet and admit that you enjoy a nice red :) 

It doesn’t have to be just for the ladies lol!!

Get a nice Pinot Noir and pour yourself something more than a splash!

Cheers!

Thanks for your responses. The other guys in my group and I will probably continue to drink beer. I'm going to get some good wine for the ladies and a Champagne. But, I want to taste, via a tiny sip, the good wine, which is all I will do, as I said, the wine is for the women.
