Default What wine to bring to celebrate?

Hello Everybody,

My wife and I have bought a house in Desoto and will be coming for the first time June 3. We are very excited to make this house a home! I need suggestions on a bottle of wine to bring with to celebrate our new home. Red, please. Maybe you know a great Cabernet Sauvignon or a delightful Pinot Noir?

Full Disclosure: I'm cheap, but I do like a tasty wine............Robert Mondavi Private Selection.


Don't get overly impressed with "Private Selection".......doesn't drive cost.



Good Luck.

Decoy Cabernet is good.

I do like Robert Mondavi. My favorite is the Cabernet Sauvignon, private selection, aged in Bourbon barrels.

I was once given a bottle of Dom Perignon champagne. I drank it, but I couldn't tell the difference between it and the Cooks that I usually buy.

So "bring" is the operative word. Unless you';re going for mass market, you'll find the selections close by to be limited. So buy it where you are and drive it down .. but dont put it in the trunk !! I have some vintage Italian wines I'm still figuring out how to move down ..
A nice intermediate red is Stag's Leap Artemis.

Everyone has their own taste, but I stay away from Pinots.. I look at them as Cabs that are too strong for the drinker, so they add water and poof there you have a social wine with no body or taste ..

If you want to go up a bit, you can't go wrong with Alexander Valley Silver Oak ..

If you;re going to have some fun and add some cheese and salami for example, try RUFFINO CHIANTI RISERVA DUCALE D'ORO (GOLD)
Also very nice and moderately priced.

Have fun !!

Thanks for the recommendations, I may try the Stag's if I can find it. I plan to bring a few bottles, but we are bringing all of our "stuff", so it will be limited to a couple bottles. Some good Wisconsin cheese will be coming with for sure!

We can hardly stand to wait any longer to get there. Feeling like little kids before Christmas.

It's not Cabernet, but I recommend Hahn Pinot Noir 2016. About $15 and excellent.
