Chateau Valendraud has to be my fav. Quite pricey though.

If you're referring to late harvest zinfandel/reisling, then I'd consider those dessert wines.

i usually just make kiidush on it and then switch to bourbon after so dont have much taste in wines though i think they would be considered a normal wine and not dessert

Fine/Dry Wine is one drink I just haven't been able to acquire a taste for.
For me it's Moscato all the way.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

I'm hardly an aficianado, but I've recently gotten into...

Baron Herzog Cabernet Sauvignon Jeunesse.

Cheap and surprisingly tasty.

Baron Herzog Cabernet Sauvignon Jeunesse.

I think the red Jeunesse and the Herzog Black Muscat are good 'beginner' wines for those who are ready for the semi-dry stuff.

Beginner I am... I already have a few expensive hobbies. Hardly need to work up the appetite (or thirst) for another :P

I actually do like Black Muscat. Had it first at the Herzog winery.
Maybe there's hope for me yet?
