Just cause I'm interested in wines, thought I'd ask this question, and see what people are drinking

We had some Frascati with dinner tonight. It was homemade from a kit.

I've had some luck with Lost Angel in the past too.
Last night was an Eric Kent 2102 Rose. Perfect for a spring light dinner.

Gazzi Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast 2008 ($15). Pinot had Syrah added to give it backbone, so it is not as light and fruit focused as it would have been. Decent effort and priced right.

2010 Amador Foothills Zinfandel 'Clockspring' ($12). Normally the Amador Foothills Zin is reliable but this one had a very funky nose, too barnyard for the style.

A limited relase, Apothic Dark, a tremendous value at $8.
Most shops are out of it if they even had any but I am looking for more.
