Help! Now With Wine!

My birthday is almost upon us, and my mother correctly deduced that money is what would be most appreciated. For the moment, it's tiding me over until Met Life Disability Insurance realizes that neither I, nor my doctor, ever told them that I returned to work on June 4th.

Once that's cleared up, however, it's time for Surdyk's Wine Sale! I'm putting together a list of what I want to buy. I'm looking for suggestions. As a bonus, any woman who helps me make a choice and can make it to Northeast Minneapolis is welcome to split a bottle with me.

(Hopefully, no one notices my cheap attempt to get a date.)

I used to just drink sweet rieslings. Adjusting to wine now that I can no longer drink beer (it's the carbonation, you see) was difficult. I've started to branch out, though. Pinot Grigios are another type of good white. I've also developed a fondness for Merlots. I'm working on Pinot Noir's.

On the other hand, I have yet to meet a Chardonnay that I thought was drinkable.

I am already planning to try a Sirah, a Shiraz, a Cabernet Sauvignon, a Sauvignon Blanc and (because they are mentioned in literature all the time) a Claret and a Port.

I'm also trying a couple of Spanish wines, and a couple of Italians, that don't feature the nomenclature that everything else does.

So, any suggestions?

Update: Note to self: Remember to check your own blog entries so you don't start repeating yourself like an idiot.

Sorry, I have no suggestions, I'm more about whines.

Well, then I guess you don't get to share a bottle of wine with the God, no do you?
