Paging all Kendall Jackson Grand Reserve experts.

I know jack crap about wine. What's your take on this one.

Lastly, what brand of cigarettes would you recomend to pair up with this?

Now you're reverting to bad habits.

Both. I am a very much a Francophile appreciator of wines, it was them that gave the LOVE (no whites please unless as a part of a recipe) for wines it started long ago and I was able to impress the wife and friends with the pairings that I can produce between food and wines. If I was in charge the praise was a bit high, and I am not blowing my horn. If you can find it a bottle of Chateau de Beycheval from Bourdeaux will kick ass.

Wife and friends like it, not a wine drinker myself but they seem to approve of KJ.

look I sell wine for a living, if I am going to buy a reserve wine it wont be KJ and I sell KJ...... any Mondavi Napa wine would beat that, or most Coppolas too.....ask me if you want any professional opinions (just means I have a little more of a clue than you, but not much)......

Ok. I'll ask you.

Recommend a good Sangiovese and a good California red blend. $25-$50.

Simi is a very good mid week choice. Zins?

Red Zins have become much more popular lately....the St Francis $17 and Gnarly Head $12 are very good, but M Goode Liars Dice $18 is amazing if you find some.......... I went to Simi a few years ago, pretty cool seeing their production facilities

Now, I have to confess...when I taste what I like, I've yet to taste leather, dirt, etc.

I've had all but the M Good LD. I'll look for it. Zins are my favorite ...I'm low, low class...
