    i hear ya (especially on the drink the white while grilling, then switch)... i do like whites with grilled chicken, but i most definitely prefer reds if i were to roast instead (it may be whatever it is that accompanies the chicken)... i never drink whites with fish though and some pinots pair well. if i'm eating an über white fish, i almost rather drink beer honestly.

    well, there's cheap and then there's CHEAP. i find $17-20 to be rather inexpensive and definitely worth someone's while.

    but i'll do it for you...

    I have half a bottle of Old Moon Zin, TJs $6/bottle in my pantry. I think I will finish it tonight before I play Forza2.

    Not half bad IMO.

    The best Pinots are from Washington State. About $30 for a decent bottle.

    Many great spanish, argentinian, and chilean grenaches and malbec for $6. Low in tanins, dark in color, rich in cherry and spice.

    Jim Fox tells me he's a big wine fan.

    I wonder if Ian Turnbull has tried the Turnbull Zinfindal?

    i don't like empirical statements like this... especially those that i completely disagree with.

    aside from the fact that i've always known Washington to be more of a great Merlot producer, the furthest north i think have ever heard the term "best" used with regard to a west coast pinot has been probably Oregon's Willamette Valley (Eyrie to be specific). maybe some Washingtonians are sneaking into Portland late at night and stealing s***, who knows.


    at any rate, the best Pinots STILL come from France.

    Haven't seen it mentioned yet, but my wife's new favorite and slowly becoming mine:


    My all time favorite though is a Merlot from Pride Mountain, Paloma
    If you are ever in the Napa, I highly recommend a visit to vineyard owners home (Jim and Barbara) for wine tasting in their kitchen overlooking the vineyard.

    update!

    aw Dog... the Zenato 2004 Pinot Grigio is a TOTAL two-fer!

    now i don't have any sort of developed palate for Pinot Grigio, but i CAN tell you that for the price (around $10 bucks or so at Cost Plus), THIS white is fantastic!

    not at all dry like Chardonnays and other Pinot Gris/Grigios i have had at that price... i dare say at even more expensive prices as well.

    this is a great white should you decide to pair with grilled chicken or fish unless you're going for more of a sweet grill (i guess), and DEFINITELY something you could absolutely wreck while grilling in the early summer evening.

    "swilling" indeed!
