favorite cheap wine
 
Red or white, doesn't matter. I like the meridian pinot noir. I think it's about $8-10 at thrifty. I buy it by the case (cheaper volume pricing).

I'm always on the lookout for good wines. I'm interested in hearing your favorites.

WHOOOO HOOO! Purpahurl luva da wine. Louis Phillipe Edwards from Chile, very good, hard to find sometimes. Any old vine Zinfandels, some Moscato is very good, World Market has some.

My fave but getting harder to find J. Lohr chardonnay...World Market is the only place I can find it now.
Lindeman's chardonnay is alright and now comes in the big bottle so I can save Mr. Pokie some money!:wino:

Thanks for the suggestions. I really like the Zin blends too. Three rivers paso robles is a good one.

I'm a red man myself, but Mrs. Morph likes the whites. I'll pass these on. I agree, World Market has a good selection and some killer prices.

My first experience with fermented grape juice was with Boone's Farm Kountry Kwencher. And yes, I'm pretty sure they spell it with a K! We bought two bottles. Never twisted the cap off of the second one. As with the MD 20/20, it only happened ONCE!

Thank you I think :laugh: Just type it in google :laugh:
[edit] Etymology and meaning
The English name Isaac is a translation of the Hebrew term Yiṣḥāq which literally means "may God smile." The term conforms to a well-known Northwest Semitic linguist type, but is not known from elsewhere.[3] The Ugaritic texts from thirteenth century BCE refer to the benovolent smile of the Canaanite god El;[3] the Bible (i.e. the canonical collections of sacred writings of Judaism), however, ascribes the laugher to be Isaac's mother (Sarah) rather than the Canaanite god El.[3] The reason for Sarah's laughing, according to the Bible, was that God gave the news of the birth of Isaac to his parents. Since they were beyond the age of having children, they privately laughed at the prediction.

the wisdom of our forefathers
 
"We hear of the conversion of water into wine at the marriage in Cana as of a miracle. But this conversion is, through the goodness of God, made every day before our eyes. Behold the rain which descends from heaven upon our vineyards, and which incorporates itself with the grapes, to be changed into wine; a constant proof that God loves us, and loves to see us happy." -Ben Franklin

Ben was a very wise man ;) Nothing like a fine wine to ease the mind. :laugh:

Got a regift for Christmas it was J. Lohr and it was very good.

Charles Shaw aka Two Buck Chuck at Trader Joes $2.99 to $3.49.

It really is a respectable wine - bottled and corked (not boxed or screwtop) and has won awards even in Cali.
