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.

Three Wishes Cabernet, a budget wine from Whole Foods, and good for its cheap price.

1988 Pesquera. Outstanding stuff. I think I need to get some of the current vintage and hide it away for a while.

Force Majeure 2012 Viognier ($35) - Washington State light, impressive white done in a Rhone style. Not big and tropical like a California version of this grape, it goes for delicate flavors, but with impressive complexity.

2010 Cuvee Signee. This is a Cabernet Franc from the Chinon area of the Loire Valley. Really smooth, good forward fruit flavors. Delicious as a glass of wine on the deck, but the light body will not hold well against flavorful cheeses or meats

Christian Moieux Medoc 2005 ($10). This is a decent bordeaux which is fairly simple in flavor but avoids all of the pitfalls of lower end reds.

Meier's, La Brusca Bianco. Its kind of a generic tasting white wine that was given to me.

2010 Dr. Konstantin Frank Cab. Like every Finger Lakes cab, it is lighter in body, but the flavors are good.

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.
