Any wine enthusiasts with a favorite chardonnay or red wine??

I'm always prowling for a new favorite. I like my whites to be a bit buttery or very light and crisp. My reds not too dry (I don't like to feel like I just liked the barrel lol). I typically turn towards pinot noirs (yumm).

I love Conundrum, a white wine blend that is both dry and sweet. I'm not too crazy about reds because they're usually too dry for me. But then, I totally refuse drinking those icky sweet Port wine! Yuck!

Cabernet Sauvignon and it's good for you too. In moderation of course.

Do you have a favorite Vinyard or name brand for your Cabs?

No, either bought at Trader Joe's and mostly Costco. Since I was in Costco 3-4 times a week, easy to get it there. Found the $12-16 ones were more to my liking than the over $20 one. They stopped carrying the label I used to get. Been so long can't remember the name right now. Local from Ca though.

Ok now you need to find a sweet red wine. I like a dry red for Italian and whites for the summer months (as long as they are sweet) (dry for fish) but I just came across these sutter home sweet reds and they are amazing.

I do enjoy a good sweet red from time to time. There's a Blackberry red wine from one of our local wineries that is very delicious. Its by Mallow Run. Yum

My buddies and I used to drink Blackhaus Blackberry brandy. It was pretty good. Only problem is the usual issues with brandy. Its very sweet and too much will hang you over like crazy.

Does cooking with wine count? If so, I use dry whites in my risotto and chicken creations.

My favorite is Moscato, but lately they have been making it a little too dry.Give me a very sweet one anyday.

It's made from the Sauvignon Blanc grape so it's on the crisp side with hints of mineral, passion fruit, and a little bit of earthyNess to it. It's not overly sweet at all. Its mostly made in france. So, I guess, technically it's a french wine

You may like a good Gewurztraminer. It's a nice sweet white that I've been known to enjoy. Moscato is also one of my favorite.

In your area, where do you get your salmon from. Are there fish markets or specialty places ?
