Hey Plugmeister, since when did you care about wines?
Are you thinking about switching over from Sambuca out of a dunkin donuts cup?
Say it aint so. LOL

Only if you have a fondness of Ripple, Mad Dog, or any beer that comes in one of those big combat cans. But Not if you count that election.

I recently discovered a very nice California Cab in the low twenties - Earthquake. Well worth the money.

I didn't care for Earthquake, but in its price range, it is worth a try.

There is a red California table wine (non-varietal) that is called simply 'Red'. If you can find it, it is a good everyday wine and very, very affordable.

I'll look for 'Red' - I seem to recall seeing the label. Surprised about the Earthquake - I wonder if we had different vintages (I think, but am not sure that mine was a 2005,) but then again it might just come down to taste... it was a particularly nice meal that night... that started with one... maybe two single malts...

I can picture myself in the liquor store asking the attendant if has ANY California Red? I may get proofed for that remark.

Those single malts will fix anything.

I also strongly recommend Stonehedge - Reserve Old Vine Zinfandel - 2005. $9.95 at Trade Joes, while it lasts. A full-body Zin that finishes well.
