Keep in mind that I'm more of a Guinness/ Dark Ale/ Stout beer drinker:

Stumbled on it by accident at Trader Joe's. Anyone else try it?

I'm more of a Boone's Farm or Thunderbird fan If I get crazy it's Mad Dog 20/20.

Anytime you can use the phrase "Taste the Rainbow" in reference to wine it must be a good thing right?

I wonder how this pairs with Skittles?  Mabe you could use this as snow cone syrup too?

lol, I'm just gonna ignore Murph and Jeff. :smileywink:

I don't believe I've tried that one. When buying for myself, I typically sample from the local missouri varieties and follow my nose. I do enjoy traveling with some AUGI folk, because a couple of them have some excellent taste and memories for that type of thing and I always enjoy whatever they order for the table. I just don't have the head for remembering what I do and don't like. ~shrugs~

I'm more a of a beer drinker myself like Dean... I enjoy the dark side of craft brewing.  But I enjoy a glass of wine from time to time.  There are many wines I enjoy, leaning more toward the reds.  I do enjoy a riesling though, and Michigan wines tend to be my favorites (prejudiced?).  Of them all, this is the one I buy more often than any other... it just says Traverse City to me.

I'm more into the Austrailian table wines.  Something like a Louis Saint Woggawogga.

Beer: Same as you: Guinness - Dark Beer/Stout

Wine: Most Chianti

What I drink most of the time: Whiskey: Glenlivet, Cardhu, Macallan - even Bulleit or Red Label.

That reminds me, I need to add a bottle of Glen Fidditch to my shopping list for tonight.  Nothing sadder than an empty scotch bottle....  :smileyvery-happy:
