Default Wine suggestions.

So, I didn't want to hijack Southpaw's thread more than I already did, so I figured I would bring this over here.

I have ALWAYS wanted to like wine. I love the idea of sitting down with a book and drinking some wine. Problem is that I want it to taste like grape juice and it definitely does not.

I'm pretty sure that the wine I have had has been dry, since mostly I've had it at Ryan's grandparents house, and I think they only drink dry wines. I think it tastes like rubbing alcohol

So if anyone can give me a suggestion for a nice, sweet wine...

For sweet try a Moscato. It's a very sweet desert wine, I can barely stand how sweet it is.

No way, wine is delicious. <3 I prefer Pinot Grigio, Riesling, and Sauvignon Blanc but they all tend to be a bit dryer and wine-ier.

Go make a batch of your own. Pick something fruity. They'll let you add as much fruit flavour to it as you'd like, and pre bottling you should be able to add and test sugar. I make my own as it's more economical or the amount I'd like to drink.

You could always try desert wines. I really like ice wines. The last one I had tasted like honey

Check out Italian and Spanish wines. They're typically softer. Riunite's Lambrusco is a good drinkable red for most people who don't typically like reds. Riunite's line really isn't a bad place to start. Sangria is another style of red that's soft and easy.

A white grenache is a good choice and most of the California wineries' offerings of it are good. Gallo is actually a good one to try in the white grenache. Berringer's white Zinfandel is one that's got some sweetness to it, but is still good with just about any food.

Two things I discovered recently that aren't exactly wine but really delicious...Cuban Cream, in the neighborhood of Baileys but even smoother. The other is a mix of chocolate and red wine, that or the cream over ice is dessert in a glass.

So sweet it's almost a punchline for folks who grew up in Jewish homes, Manischewitz wines are iconic. I like the elderberry...

Dark chocolate and the right red wine are incredible! I love a glass of old vine Zinfandel with dark chocolate and chevre.

Oh, and PDub, most of the German wines fall into the same kind of drinkability as the Italian and German. If you can find Keiller-Geister it is just beautiful.

The wine I drink tastes like grape juice and I <3 it. I cant stand dry wine, instant headache.

My favorite is a local wine (but its a fairly big winery so not sure how far it may sell). St. James Red Velvet. Also really like muscado.
