That looks like a crisp sauvignon blanc to me.
I'd probably prefer shitty beer to white wine at this point in my life.
Blanc is the only white I like, it's crisp and tart instead of oily and gross.

Whites tend to be too thin tasting for my hobo palate. Plus it always seems to be served too chilled. Yes, yes, I can just wait for the temperature of the room to lower it, but I'm complaining here! Anyway, red wine is my self-medication. Tonight is pinot noir (70+ bottles in the basement, plus a couple weeks away from bottling another 25+).

I like a red but prefer an iced cold Chardonnay When quaffing.
Do you make your own?

Yeah, the last months I've amped up my production so that I can let more bottles age. Last summer I set aside a few bottles to age for six or seven months and the effect was noticeable. Amazingly smooth. I've got about 100 bottles available, so this next batch will come close maxing out my bottle supply. Once you've dealt with the cost of the initial equipment, the booze is cheap—about $1.50 a bottle.

Pinot Noir is a favorite, but to me nothing will beat Sebastiani's '08 Cabernet. That was a nice, peppery bastard. I miss it.

The Boss got me making Cab when she got sick of Shiraz. It took me awhile, but I came to enjoy that as well. The only red that I refuse to make is Merlot. Can't stand that creamy shit.

I have no taste for wine. I like the flavor it can impart as part of cooking but just cant find one that I like to just drink.

If you've never tried Shiraz, give that a shot. It's got a really bold taste and generally higher alcohol content. That's still my go-to wine because I prefer the buzz to crap like subtlety. I really need to start drinking out of a paper bag …

Same here. It's like liquid sugar.

Another bold one that's gaining popularity is Malbec. Good if you like full-bodied reds.

Never made that (nor had it, to my knowledge). I'll have to see how much a kit costs.
