I'm new to the entire wine thing, but I'm really looking to expand my tastes. What do you generally look for in a good wine, and if at all possible can anyone recommend me a few bottles to try?

Also has anyone tried any of the Caduceus wines? If so what did you think.

I'm not going to pretend to be a great wine expert, but I have a guy on every week that talks about beer/wine/spirits and cigar pairings. You can find him on twitter @mmWine if you use that or I'll ask him during the show this week!

I'm looking to get into wine as well. I'm normally a whisk(e)y guy. I guess if it's like getting into single malt or bourbon, you just have to drink a bunch -(P

Frei Brothers Cabernet Sauvignon has never let me down. I don't know a whole lot about wine yet, though I do drink quite a bit of it. If on a tight budget, fetzer is my choice. All of them are under $10 per bottle. The frei brothers cab is around 22. I normally don't pay more than that for a bottle.

Appreciate it, let me know what he thinks

Get book on wine, especially dedicated to Bordeaux and go from there. It's best to learn about one region or varietal at a time. A subscription (at least an online one) to Wine Spectator will help too.

You can't go wrong with Oregon Pinot's

Wine is definitely something I've always wanted to get into as well. Like cigars though, so many options!
