\\ Wines of Note Thread //

Theres gotta be some more wine drinkers on here so post up what you're drinking!

I've started studying for my Certified Specialist of Wine exam and then I'll hopefully move on to take the Level 1 Sommelier exam shortly after so I'm gonna be powering through a lot of different regions in the coming months, been covering Rhone the past couple weeks along with continuing to taste locally here in Santa Barbara County. I usually taste anywhere from 10 - 20 new wines a week so I'll try not to spam this thread too much.

I'll start with one thats been my go to when eating and hanging out...Chateau de Campuget, Costieres de Nimes 2013 Rosť - incredible dry-rosť with a killer price, tons of strawberry, cheese funk and great acidity.

Nice, love finding wines that drink well at that price point. The rose I posted is $9.99 at BevMo.

I love apothic wine. Definitely a great wine for the price. We just came home from the wine store with some new choices. I'll update as I drink them.

I'm not much of a wine drinker, but my wife and I are members at Naked Winery, and they have some pretty good wines.

if you like apothic and you don't mind going with a bit more serious wine, definitely heavier... give Carnivore a try, i'm not crazy about a super heavy wine like this, however i think it is excellent quality for what it is, especially since i'm not too keen on apothic
