What I like about wine:

Wine really takes A LOT of time to understand ... so it's nice to discuss it with people who know their stuff. But I especially enjoy learning about inexpensive but delicious wines and stocking up on those. Basically I really enjoy the 90+ under $20 list.

Zocker Paragon Vineyard Riesling 2009
(this vintage is sold out)
Price: $19.99
Style: Light & Crisp
Pair with: Seafood
So that's what that is! The diesel or lighter fluid taste. And here I thought it was just me. The nose is pleasurable, but yes, I had to pause at that odd flavor. But you know what? I do like this wine since it pairs so well with food. I'm just too used to the CSM Rieslings ... this is different and good too!

Quinta do Vallado Douro Tinto 2009
(this vintage is sold out)
Price: $23.99
Style: Smooth & Supple
Pair with: Cheese > Cheddar
A very good solid and tasty red. I would say it's between medium to full bodied. It brings to mind juicy raisins ... really pleasurable to sip. It's also just a nice alternative to Napa Cabernet in the same price range.

I too am a fan of the Oak that is silver. Have you ever tried the vintner's select version, the Gold Oak?
