Because of this thread I am getting into wine . My fiance has always drank blush wine now we are getting into the more traditional wines. I already made a couple of trips to wine and spirits store as we call it here in Pennsylvania, I bought what people were talking about here such as William Hill Cabernet Sauvignon, Cline Zin and Cline Big Break Zin, and also a wine for dummies DVD lol. Unfortunately the wineries do not ship to PA so I am limited. Any other recommendation for a good Zin or Cabernet Sauvignon. Thanks Drew

Wineries don't ship to Virginia either. It really gets my grapes.

Drew, there may be some good suggestions for cab savs already in this thread, but if you want to start with a quality wine at a reasonable price, the Robert Mondavi Woodbrige cab is around $13 Cdn (so less USD) and excellent for its price. Another good cab standard is Wolf Blass Yellow Label. They are big sellers, popular, but they are lovely quality performers for their price.
Painter Bridge is a Californian zin that is similarly priced and quite lovely.

Best cab i've had yet to date, a 1994 Lindemans Coonawarra. Hard to find now.

Well thank goodness those "Winersies" don't ship to Virginia Peter. Heaven knows what would happen if any winersies got loose.

Rosenblum is one of my favorite wineries, acocording to their storefront web site they do ship to VA Rosenblum
We are stopping at their winery in Alameda tomorrow late afternoon when we arrive up in that area, then it's on to Napa

Nice find, HD! Perhaps legislation recently changed. I know I can find Rosenblum in grocery stores here, but the selection straight from the winery is obviously much better.

Yeah Peter, VA law changed about three years ago.

Drew, a similar situation applies to wines not sold in Pennsylvania stores .

I'm drinking a great cab with a couple friends right now. So good I had to post it.... Well that and getting out of carving another damn turkey.

2002 Steltzner Cab
Stags Leap District

Heavy body, very long legs..(14.8%)

Berry on the nose at first
Spice, tobacco and plum
Berry finish.

This is definitely a complex wine. I've not ever had one go from berry, to spice and then back to berry again.
