Looking for labels. I love Red Pinot Noir. Mostly with a meaty meal of Steak etc.. I would love to learn of the great labels of all of the wine regions on the planet. When I go to the liquor store I feel like a fool looking for something good. The house expert comes by and recommends things, and has been pretty good so far, but I want to look for wine in the $10.00- $30.00 range because I'll tell ya...You find some pretty good wine in that range. So for me, I'm interested in learning about the best labels. If you can help, thanks!

Have you tried any wines from CHILE?

Welcome to the Snooth Forum RR. I have two recommendations for you to expand your knowledge
Hang out here at the Forum. It is amazing how much I learn by reading other peoples' posts. Now, when I say "Hang out here," I also mean "participate." You're off to a good start. Keep asking questions.
Try as many wines as you can without prejudice. What matters is what you like, not what EMark likes or what James Laube likes. Sure, use other peoples' suggestions as recommendations, but, believe me, nobody is getting information carved in stone tablets from a Mount. If I say that Ridge Lytton Springs is the "best label" in your target price range, and you try it, and you don't like it, then you are right.
- Sorry, I'm adding a third recommendation. Avoid using nomenclatures like "best labels." Superlatives generally fall apart in the wine world. Prior performance is no guarantee of future performance. ;-)

EMark has you off to a good start. I post notes on wines, typically on Tuesdays and Thursdays here ont he site but there is a lot of sharing that goes on here int he forum and it's one of the best places to get to know wine.
