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.
