Penny, good wines need not be expensive. As a matter of fact, when I purchased the Tapestry wine several years ago, it was less than $15 a bottle. Like me, it just got a little better with age.
Enjoying wine doesn't have to be expensive. I like Glen Ellen... they have put out some exceptional wines. There are other wines like Lindemans and Penfolds that taste great but won't break the bank. The love of wine doesn't have to be an expensive hobby. It's just fun to enjoy the flavors that are inheritant to various growing regions. I am not one of those savor the bouquet, swish it around the mouth, spit it out snobs. Wine is meant to be enjoyed.
