Wine choices

I like wine, and that is about the level of my expertise. I say that is good enough and people should drink what tastes good to them. Much of what tastes good will change depending on what is being served food wise, but as far as after dinner, after work, or casual sipping, the grape juice needs to stand on its own.

I have gone between all the blends and pures and I am back to good ol' Cabernet right now. I found one that I particularly like and that is Ravenswood Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma 2002. We have found less and less of the 2002 and still like the 2003.

Let me say price is a big thing for me. While I have paid good money for good wine I like to find "bargain" wines, and the Ravenswood is unbeatable right now at just $8-12 per bottle.

I don't do the whole colorful bouquet, with hints of nutmeg and oak, blah, blah. To me it is, how palatable is it? Too acidic? After taste? Full flavor or watery? Just simple things. After a couple glasses who cares anyway.

Sooooo, if you like reds give it a try and let me know what you think. Also would love to hear any recommendations others have in the range.
