Never been too much of a wine drinker, however I started thinking how nice it would be to relax once in a while with a glass of wine before bedtime, local liquor store recommended this

We like it, not too bad and doesnt leave one feeling groggy the next day. (well just one glass would be hard to make anyone sick LOL.)

The only wine I've EVER liked comes from the engine in my car

I drank a LOT of beer in my early 20'*, so much in fact that my sweat during the summer on mondays and tuesdays smelled like beer LOL. Didnt like that lol.

I still enjoy a cold beer on a hot day, but those times are getting few and far between the last few years.

i love wine, i usually drink Shiraz or Chianti and once in a while a Cabernet Sauvignon or a Merlot, but NEVER a white wine.

I served the frei brothers pinot nior with our thanksgiving dinner and it wasnt bad

bonus is, even after drinking 2 bottles of wine in a night, i still usually feel great in the morning....

this 6th sense shiraz is currently my favorite!

Yeah, Frei Bro'* should be pretty good stuff. I've never personally tried it. So far I've found I'm a fan of sweet whites, and that'* about it. I think it'* funny you who say you don't like wine but like beer. To me beer tastes like watered down, fizzy wine...it'* not aweful, but ehh..not for me.

LIAR. I wish you were here right now so I wouldn't have to make fun of you on the internet...

Frei Brothers = Redwood Creek = the Merlot you drank on Thanksgiving and in my french onion soup....
