I'm a big fan of the dry whites. I'd recommend the Sebeka Chenin Blanc for a wonderful, affordable white selection :)
This goes great with a fancy chicken dinner....maybe rosemary....mmmmmmm :)

I like a full bodied Cabernet Sauvignon. If white is on the menu, then a Fume Blanc or the old standby...White Zin.

With dinner, red. Red red red all day long, I don't care about "pairing". After dinner, I'm more of a Grand Marnier person.

@woadwarrior: I enjoy a good Mead also. Have you ever tried Chaucer's? They sell it on wine.woot once in awhile but I never bought any because of bad reviews.

@dmaz and @rprebel, I've never had a Chenin Blac OR a Fume Blanc, so many wines so little time!

@chipgreen: The bad reviews for Chaucer are well deserved. ::shudder::

So very gross.

Personally, if I'm drinking white, then Reisling, or Viogner, or perhaps a nice Rose (in my world, if it's not red, it's white).

Mostly I drink red wine, and I'm very choosy. I don't care much for Cab Franc, and really wish they'd quit using it in blends, even. I love all the full bodied reds, especially Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Pinot Noir, Petite Sirah... You get the idea. Oh, and any good Bordeaux gets my attention, of course.

@chipgreen: I've never had Chenin either, but I know a fair-good Fume Blanc can be had for not too much cash. Mondavi, maybe? It's been a while.

With the exception of Alsatian Gewürztraminer, Reisling and Sylvaner, I tend to prefer reds. (My ex-Parents-in-law were Alsatian and I started drinking wine with wines from the areas where they grew up, sometimes wines made by people they went to school with.)

For reds, I tend to like Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Syrah/Shiraz, Tempranillo, Zinfandel and varieties similar to these.

@shrdlu: love me some Viognier! How do you feel about Barbera? I've only had it once but really liked it.

Mostly I'm a dry red wine whore. <---can I say that? If not, please forgive. I am overly fond of dry reds. Dry whites are secondary favorites.

@rprebel: Mondavi always seems to be a safe choice, consistently good and a reasonable value no matter the variety. Ever had anything by Blackstone? My least favorite wine ever was a Blackstone Merlot... and I usually like Merlot.

@baqui63: I've never even heard of Sylvaner but I enjoy Gewurz... a lot! Lately I've found that I really like Argentinian wines - Albarino, Torrontes, Malbec.

@gmwhit: I haven't found too many dry whites that I like unless they have a strong minerality to them.

@chipgreen: Can't say that I have. You mentioned Argentinian wine. I had some good luck with Peruvian wines from Ica. Beautiful city.

neither of them
beer is better for me

@rprebel: My Dad visited Peru once. Unfortunately he wasn't much of a wine drinker. He came home with paintings from street artists instead.

@ptnjust007: Lots of interesting beers being made these days. My love of wine and learning about wine has caused me to neglect my former favorite beverage recently. Guess I need to start drinking more!

I like red. Now your turn. Do you like apple or blueberry pie?

vote-for5vote-against

Red. Bordeaux Superieur. Or LaTouraine.

@chipgreen: Chaucers and a couple of the other commercial meads tend to taste like wet cardboard. Magpie mead is a very good meadery in NY state. http://www.magpiemead.com/ (I had some of his mead before he turned pro.)

@mikecris: I'll have to go with apple pie over blueberry but they're both good!

@woadwarrior: thanks for the link! I found a locally produced Ohio Honey Mead that I really enjoy from Valley Vineyards. http://www.valleyvineyards.com/

Bummer, Magpie no longer ships to Ohio and Valley Vineyards is sold out of their 750ml Honey Mead although they still have 1/2 bottles available.
