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!

Me too SM!  Was great to hang out with good food, wine, conversation and friends. The rest of my family arrived up at the cabins today.  It’ll be a late night with lots of good wine!  

Fishing has been outstanding too!  

We’ll do it again for sure!

Plmlk,

That was the first time in "many, many a moon" that I've had multiple brands of reds in one sitting.  That certainly helped my wine tasting education listen to your (and BIL's) description of the various tastes, aromas, how they went down, etc.....and then utilized the desription to help define my own experience. Great atmosphere, conversation, food, etc....appreciated every moment.

Hung out with SM and my BIL yesterday. 

Good thing we were not short on good wine.  

I had a couple of advanced wines, but they are an acquired taste.  

Tje group favorite was Rodney Strong - my fav was the Killbinbin!

SM,

Carnivor is just ok.
