Sorry, but I hate Beaujolais with a passion. Get a real red wine, dammit. I take particular pleasure in decent cheap wine. Zabaco Dancing Bull Zinfandel. Hess Select Chardonay if you must have a white. OK, actually I would go with the Chateau St. Michelle Riesling for a white.
Pinot Noir has become so overpriced now. I used to get Saintsbury Carneros for a decent price, but it went over $25 a bottle last I saw it and it's not worth that. I think the Australian Shiraz's (Penfold's is actually good for being really cheap) have taken that spot now in my portfolio. OTOH, I have bought the French Rabbit Pinot in the little one liter container and I was pleasantly surprised. But it is just a simple drinkable wine.
And I haven't had a bad Malbec yet. Some can get a little chalky, but I don't mind that.
Give me a good Zin and a decent Chicago style Canadian bacon pizza and I am a happy man. Damn, now I'm hungry and need a drink.
