I do like a number of OZ wines, but they are either obscure/not widely available or expensive as hell (try Clarendon Hills for size). Anything below $10-12 price point, I stay away from, Far away.

See if you can find a bottle of Bogle Petite Sirah in your neck of the woods. Should be around $12 (or maybe even cheaper, I've seen a number of CA wines selling for less in FL than here). Come to think of it, any Bogle or Sebastiani offerings should provide for a clean, well made wine at an affordable price.

Also, one bottle you really need to try, especially with summer time coming, is Bonny Doon Pacific Reisling, just slightly chilled. Not the Icewine you had, but a great wine as aperitif as well as with food (Asian or some spice). And I have seen it sell at $8 per in FL (Miami area). If that is not abailable, try Fetzer Gewurtztramminer or Beringer Moscato (both in the $6 range), but that Bonny Doon is a great buy in all respects and beats many wines at double the price.
Was able to buy a bottle each of Fetzer Gewurtztramminer and Beringer Moscato at the local Wal-mart. I think the Moscato was like 4 bucks and the Fetzer was like 12 bucks. I like em ok, but the wife really likes the moscato. Also have some moscato and rieslings coming from our friend at church. I find that I like the free stuff really good (just kidding, but free is good) I think I will be with wine like I am with cigars. Will prolly have a few that I always go back to but will continue to sample and try different kinds and brands.

Well..I ended up with a Bogle Petite Syrah, and 2 Pinot Noirs- Battle Creek 2007 and Castle Rock Columbia Valley 2007. ALL were freakin fantastic.
