Hi Smooth im renewing a love affair with wine . Right now im working my way thru a few Pinot Noir .one i like a lot is a Oregon Pinot Firesteed if you have never tried it and run across it i think you will be pleasantly surprised . Also a lot of fine Merlot + Malbec's to .As you can prob tell i prefer a nice red wine.But im not opposed to some white wine suggestions .just not very sweet .

Welcome to Snooth. You have not said where you are from. I am also fond of red wines but I tend to focus on French ones

I see you're from Chicago (one of my favourite US cities). You're the first new Snooth member in quite some time to say they like merlot. That's great...I do too. I'm not a big Pinot fan as they're typically a bit light for my palate, however, I've had a few that surprised me. I'm in BC, so I'm close to the wine industries here and in Washington (some good merlot in both).
I'm curious...did you and Wine have a falling out at some point? :)

Welcome, BStef. I have don't necessarily have anything to recommend to you other than I urge you not to close your mind to anything. For what it's worth, I think there are some very good, well-priced Merlots coming from Washington.
