    Hourglass Merlot is very good if you like a bigger merlot. But I am more a Cab guy myself. If I am drinking white which isnt very often at all I like Rombauer Chardonnay!

    Giant 47 Pound Rooster

    Free range red. I challenge you to find a better wine for under $10.

    I've tried the Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and the claret.

    Very good wine for under $20.
    I'm a fan of Coppola Claret

    Coppolas best wine is their Merlot... The claret is cool and all, but their Merlot put them on the map.

    What are you finding these for price wise? I'm seeing them around $60-80

    I've not been able to get into the La Sirena line. They're absolutely fantastic wines (and should be with Heidi making them)...but for the price, I just don't know that they are great buys. One of the Syrahs (I can't remember if it's the single vineyard or the regular) is really close to being a great QPR, and the Dry Moscato is fantastic, but fantastic $30 whites are a dime a dozen if you know what you're looking for.

    Sooners2007, $60 - $80 is about right for OK. It sells ~$55 wholesale.

    I'm in Kansas but your kinda hitting on where I was going with that comment... 60-80 seems a bit overpriced for that bottle?!

    I've been trying to have a nice glass of red every evening. Lately, I've been enjoying a glass of this.

    No, by glass I mean glass. I don't drink an entire bottle of wine in one night. But yes, it's a pretty decent red wine.

    I polished off almost an entire 1.5L bottle of Riesling this evening and not even a buzz. I swear there is no alcohol in it. I am disappoint.

    Haha it's funny, the ones I get seem to have extra alcohol. Was it Relax? That's the yum.

    I don't know that I'd call it overpriced...there's just, IMO, much better values out there.

    Rieslings typically fall between 10% to 12% ABV. I'm sure it was close to 10% Bush. That's like 3.5 pints of a stout IPA or 5.5 2oz pours of scotch.

    Tried some tropical fruit wine this past weekend. It wasn't all as sweet as you'd think. Some very good drys and semi-drys.

    Can you have wine shipped to your house in Oklahoma?

    you'd think i'd feel something after more than a liter though. oh well, i guess i'll stick to cabs and cab blends.

    i opened a 2002 roodeberg (cab sauv-shiraz) that has followed me from miami-san diego, san diego-oklahoma. needless to say there's a lot of dust on the bottle, but that's a good thing. its not my favorite, but drinkable with a medium body and a slightly sweet cherry finish. i think my next move into wine is going to be argentine and maybe chilean reds.

    +1 on the Chilean reds! Drank a Chilean red meritage awhile back(red blend), can't remember the label, but it was ****ing tasty!

    I am having Barefoot Moscato my best friend brought me in exchange for my cooking =)

    Spend the extra money and get the Tintero Moscato d'Asti. Absolutely fantastic wine, and it's only like 15 bucks.

    And then, when you want to really treat and educate the palate, go find Champalou Vouvray.

    If you're in the OKC area, try and make it to Freeman's on Western/NW43rd when you're wine shopping. He buys and holds lots of wine so that he can put them out when they've aged some. Always fun drinking wine that is older.

    Look at Luca out of Argentina, they have a Malbec, a Syrah, and a blend called Beso de Dante. Every Luca I've had is pretty dang good. Other things to look at: Recuerdo Malbec (Blackbird's Argentina project) and the Luigi Bosca products are both nice.
