    +1. The Prisoner is very good.

    I haven't read through this thread so I'm not sure if Apothic Red has been mentioned, but it's a great blend in the $8 - $10 range. It's a little sweet and a fruit bomb, but outstanding for the price. It's one that I keep around as an every day red. Costco here in Atlanta sells it for $8.49 or so.

    Rhone varietal blends are usually solid (Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre).

    If you are just looking for a table wine, stick with new world blends from California - usually cheap-ish.

    Agree, but can be way overpriced in restaurants. Pick it up for 35-40 in your local wine store.

    The quality of the Prisoner has gone way down in recent years, IMO. Before it blew up and was still a relatively small production wine it was incredible and worth the price. Now the Papillon, still by Orin Swift, is ridiculously good and well worth the even higher pricetag.

    Salvestrin Sauvignon Blanc
    CakeBread [a lot of good ones]
    St. Suppery Sauvignon Blanc
    Chateau St. Jean [a lot of good reds]

    are my current favorites.

    D'Autrefois is the #1 Pinot Noir at Total Wine. Pretty drinkable everyday stuff for $9.95 a bottle. Not bad for serving at a big party too.

    We hit up this place in Tuscany, about 45 minutes outside of Florence a few months ago. We ordered a case of Chianti and wish we had ordered more. Great wine tour and tasting lunch.

    There are many excellent Italian Toscanas or 'SuperTuscans'. These are usually 80% Sangiovese blended with Cabernet or Merlot, or both.

    Look for 'Toscana IGT' on the bottle. They range in price from $10-$100 and up.

    Agree - but I'm trying to remember which year just blew it away, the most current one I don't like nearly as much in comparison.

    Sweet I'll have to try these. Another good option under $20 is Meiomi. It's a screw-top too.

    Big Fire and Erath are also two Oregon Pinots that you can find for around $20

    I don't know if this was posted last year, but have y'all ever heard of Rudy Kurniawan? He sold $35 million worth of counterfeit wine when he was 29/30 years old. Pretty fascinating story.

    I've kinda kept up with that story. Personally I find it hilarious.

    I am getting six bottles of Kosta Browne Pinot this week from a buddy of mine that is boys with the owner from San Fran. I am pretty pumped.

    All Meiomi wine is good - the under $20 pinot is solid, the Belle Glos with the wax bottle top is awesome (usually $30-$40). They are owned by the same people that own Caymus and Mer Soleil - all awesome wines. Caymus Special Selection is one of the best Cabs in California every year, hands down. Mer Soleil chards are really good - the Silver is an unoaked that is really good (but maybe a bit pricey).

    Any help with a good Rose? I have tried a few here lately (Sophia, Louis Martini), but nothing is really hitting the spot.
