Never really been much of a wine drinker. Red, I guess. I do love a good single-malt scotch though.

Wow, that really makes me think of Hot Fuzz:

Barkeeper: "Um, red......... and white."


My favorite by far is cabernet sauvignon. Such a wide range from medium-light to full bodied, plus lots of prevalent fruity tones which vary greatly between wineries.

Ridge Zinfandel if I'm in California. In Croatia, the continental part has a lot of tasty whites of various sorts. The coastal part has some good reds based on the Plavac Mali grape, one of whose parents is the Zinfandel grape (which is originally from Croatia. Italian Primitivo and American Zinfandel are the same grape, but that grape is originally from Croatia). Bosnia, specifically around Mostar, has some tasty reds and white. Some nice Sauvignon Blanc down that way. They have a red down there that can be good or bad, called Blatina, and a white which is usually great, called Žilavka.

The best and worst wines I've had here have been homemade reds of unknown origin though.

Mine too. I made a Cab that is now about 14 months old. It jus keeps getting better and better. My daughters favorite is a Red Zin. I made that about 1-1/2 years ago and have 1 bottle left. I just made a Lodi Old Vines Zin for her, but it won't be ready for awhile.

I started out as a wine drinker and prior to falling in love with beer, was studying for my Sommelier certification, so I have a appreciation for all types of wine. But my favorites are rich dark reds that aren't too dry and have extreme complexity to them. Come to think of it, that is much the same way I like my beer now!
