@Petite_Fraise:  I found Anaba Winery on accident. It’s pretty much the last stop before leaving sonoma. It’s a little winery that uses wind turbines to power their winery and wine making process. They’re trying to stay off the grid completely–kinda cool.

The pinot and chardonnay are both fantastic. The reserve pinot is very full bodied, a little mushroomy. Chardonnay is oakly, but elegant.

I also like the Matanzas creek sauvignon blanc and Bennet Vally pinot–more savory than tart cherry.

@Petite_Fraise:  Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc (2006) was my absolute favorite! I feel like it is a little more grassy in recent years though so I stopped buying it regularly.

I am a lover of all wines red and white (not blush) but I would say Chardonnay is my go to. My favorites are Alamos and Rodney Strong. I love oaked chards the best!

Yay!  I’m so glad you started this thread – I was the one hoping someone would hehe.

One wine I found through Lot18 was the 2008 Cab Sauv from Vinum.  It was a wonderfully easy drinking wine, even better after decanting, and we ran through the half case we bought pretty fast ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ll have to wait to get home to add more.

I love Aquinas pinot noir and I like pretty much anything from the Cupcake brand.

My favorite varietal is riesling, and the best of that is from NY – it’s Brotherhood.  Beautiful cobalt blue bottle, very smooth (whereas many rielsings I’ve had have been acidic), and good with anything, and especially dessert!

Cakebread cab! 2008 is amazing but getting tough to find, and they just released 2010 and is good too. Its between $60-100 a bottle depending on the place, but is seriously heaven in a bottle lol

I like a lot of local wines, I don’t know how easy they are to find outside of Canada though. For white, I love Cave Springs Riesling. It’s just a gorgeous wine. Light and a bit grapey. We had it at the wedding.

For reds, we both like good old Fuzion Shiraz from Argentina. It’s easy on the bank account and tasty ๐Ÿ™‚

If I’m feeling like a dessert wine, I love the Fielding Estate late harvest cab franc. So tasty.

@nyscpa2be:  Ooooh, that recommendation is priceless to me!  We are using cobalt wine bottles as vases for our weddings, and I LOVE a good riesling!  I will check it out ๐Ÿ™‚  Thank you!

If anybody else knows good wine in blue bottles, let me know too ๐Ÿ™‚

Is anyone familiar with champagnes? I had one ay a wedding a few weeks back and it was sweet and so delicious! I also kind of tasted like strawberries! Does anyone know what kind this could possibly have been?

I really like Robert Mondavi, especially the Cabernet sauvignon and the Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Pinot Grigio.
