Now we are talking...I like red blends from the Northwest and it also depends on what I am eating and what I want. Red Zin for hanging out, but I love blends. White wine is fun in the heat but usually, not my groove.

Red wine for sure. I guess that a pure Shiraz is my overall favourite, line Bin 555, with a good Chateau Neuf (Granache, Mouvedre and Syrah) best for everyday drinking.

Sigh...Love this answer. There is a vineyard Highflyer out of Napa that has a great 2009 Centerline with some of the grapes you like. Drinkable bottle right out.

While I prefer red, I do like a nice white depending on what I am having for supper.

Steak - a nice Cabernet or Zinfandel, and Rioja
Pork - Shiraz, Merlot or red blend.
Pasta - see both above including Amarone, Ripasso and Chianti
Chicken - Bordeaux, and whites including Savignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Gwertztraminer are nice.

Just a start.

I tend not to drink wine by itself, except for rosé.

It will depend upon what I am eating as to which wine I drink.

I usually stick to red for meat and poultry and white with fish or salad.

Might sometimes drink white with other things.

Never had a decent wine from either USA or Italy. I tend to drink Southern Hemisphere wines for social drinking, red - shiraz white - chenin blanc
With a nice meal
Red - Nuits Saint Georges or Chateau Margaux.
White - Puligny Montracet or Chablis Grand Crus

White for the most part, I dont mind drinking Red, but not my fave. I find it too fruity.

There are some Malbecs from Argentina I love and Pinots from Oregon...Red, But it is about food pairing and what I want out of my wine. Robert Parker always has great recommendations. He is(maybe not anymore) the wine critic for Wine Enthusiast not Spectator who in my opinion aren't all that good.

A 'Full Bodied Red' and/or a 'Full Bodied White'. Both enhance great company.

It depends on the meal, I have always liked French wines and imho still hold their own against 'new world' wines. I like a red Cotes du Rhone or Bordeaux with red meat, a white or rose with white meat or fish. Chablis nicely chilled is great on a warm day in the garden (yard). But I do love wiiiine ;)

White these days and French dry like a Chablis or Muscadet or Sancerre .. red is just two heavy for me although a light one again French like Beaujolais is fine.

It depends entirely on the occasion. A bold red with beef. Pinot Noir with lamb or turkey. Dry Rose with grilled clams or Salmon. Gewurztraminer with a spicy fish. Just for sipping: A nice Cab franc in the fall or winter, or a buttery Chardonnay in Spring or summer. And for those of us who don't drink beer, an ice cold Niagara while out on the tractor cutting the grass.
