I guess my wife missed my update that I picked up a few of these. She came home with a bottle, said she saw it and remembered I told her it was a recommendation. Now if only she would be onboard with another car...

What did you think of it? I'm down to two bottles, so it's time to go searching. I highly recommend another car if that counts for anything.

Most Portuguese reds and whites. Not as well known as Italian and French and Californian wines but they are on spots and amazing. Give them a try!

We brought a bottle with us this past weekend but ended up ordering all seafood. So we ended up enjoying it between courses and finished it at home later that evening. What a great wine; it seemed to get better as we enjoyed it. I really liked that it initially felt like a big cab but had that zinfandel "twang" and finish.

The other car has been quite the conversation. I really want a Carrera 4, maybe 2007 or so, but my wife doesn't understand the need for 2 cars. But I work it when I can, and hopefully we'll come to an agreement. My buddy just picked up an e46 M3 as a 2nd car, and my wife is very close with his wife, who keeps telling mine to "just let him get the car"

I always go for Merlot or Cabernet Sauvignon. I won't say no to a good Zinfandel as well.

I think I must be the only one on here from Cornwall, UK..........my favourite wine is Prosecco or a local sparkling wine from the Camel Valley. I'd love to know if anyone on here has ever tried it

Current less expensive, light drinking: Jolie Laide or Sandlands

Otherwise into a lot of Beaujolais Crus (Morgon, Fleurie, etc) lately.

Getting into a pricier range: Ashes x Diamonds Cab Franc or Pierre-Yves Colin Morey whites

All are great cabs. I used to work as a bar manager in an upscale bar and had the chance to drink a lot of great wines for free. I miss those days for that.

Never tasted the value/draw in Joseph Phelps - Insignia or Opus One but some people thought it was amazing.

I rarely drink wine anymore as I don't enjoy headaches the next day, but when I did; Reisling (Relax), White Zinfandel and Pinot Grigio were typically my "go to's"

Rombauer is awesome

My favorite winery right now is Rombauer. If you can visit Napa Valley, this winery is worth your time. The setting is perfect. Picnic tables in the garden. Great views. And, of course, the wine is remarkable. My favorite is any of their Zins and Chardonnay best, but its all excellent.


When I don't feel like drinking expensive wine, my favorite cheap wine right now is Apothic Red.

Will have to check Rombauer out. Our current favorite vineyard to visit is Stags' Leap (plural stag, as opposed to Stag's Leap - singular stag, although that's pretty good too).

If you get to Napa, go in person. It's really special. I've lived in the Bay Area for years I've been lucky enough to visit several wineries. Rombauer is special both in physical setting for the winery and for their consistent production of really great wines, regardless of variety.

Here's a test. Go to your favorite wine shop. Get a bottle of 2017 Zinfandel and a bottle of Chardonnay. Bring them home. Drink them both (with friends). Report back! Have fun!

Family friend works in the industry and has been recommending to take us to Rombauer. The weather here has been so crazy so havenít had time to do wine tasting in Napa yet. Thinking we should do that in the next few weeks. Itís harvest season so should be really nice. Have also tried Apothic Red and liked it.

Please wait for a clear day. Bring a picnic basket and after tasting, buy a bottle of wine and go grab one of the tables in terraced garden. We want pictures!

I've added a couple to get you started.
