I am the adventurous one in our marriage. If I left the wine choices up to Mitch, we would be drinking a Ruffino Chianti Classico Reserva for our red wine choice or a fume blanc for a white wine choice. Not there is anything wrong with his choices, but I love variety and there is a huge vast world of choices out there and I plan on trying as many as I can. So I am buying all kinds of different wines and forcing Mitch to try them with me. Cruel woman I am.
One of the wines that I “forced” Mitch to try and is now one of his favorites is Concannon Pinot Noir, a 2011 California wine. You can find them at http://www.concannonvineyard.com. It’s also very reasonably priced at <$15 a bottle. It has a floral aroma on the nose and bright cherry flavor on the tongue. It is a medium bodied wine not too dry and not too sweet. A nice wine to enjoy with grilled chicken or pork chops.
I’m such a nice person that I don’t rub it in to Mitch that I make him try all of these different wines and I don’t make him say thank you either. Just watching him pour a second glass is thanks enough for me.
I’ll leave my silver bullet on the desk.

Chianti never disapoints – I had a nice glass the other day while in Florida on a short business trip. When you aren’t sure – you almost never go wrong with Chianti or the San Giovese grape ( Chianti outside of the region )
It was excellent with mussels ( appetizer, then strong enough to stand up to the steak main course )
Sounds like one thing your husband isn’t in danger of — being bored 🙂
That is my most fervent hope.
