bottleinamessage is an unknown quantity at this point
I have to admit I'm a bit of a wine snob, however, Black Box Cab (current vintage) is not bad and we found a wine in Sam's Club called Veo ( $6.68)which is also not bad. Our preferred choice, when we can find it on sale, is J Lohr Cab.

You all need to switch to Rum.. Cheaper, more bang for the buck, plays nice with any mix, can be used in any dish to cook with, kills any fish one might catch by pouring into the gills ( also marinades the fish while doing this), good for cuts and bruises, and makes guests want to come back for sundowners on your boat. It is the true drink for any sailors. Argggg...

The best bargain we've ever encountered is the liquor store in Eastport, MD next to West Marine. Every year, right around boat show time, they have a huge sale on everything! Prices are just a little over cost. Get there early and wait in line. It's a 3 day sale and they restock often. It's semi organized confusion! First time we went there was a fellow in front of us in the check out that had two grocery carts full of "good stuff". His bill was like $8K! We stocked our boat for most of the winter season of our Bahamas sailing. Boat sat a little lower in the water! ;-)

I seem to get headaches from wine. This after not even trinking very mush of it. Maybe it's the nitrates they put in? I've thought of going to nitrate-free wine. Anyone have experinece with this situation?

Our liquor cabinet consists of some sort of scotch for Himself, some sort of rum (dark) for myself and boxes of Vella wine, cab and burgundy, from bevmo. Those boxes are crazy cheap and very slammable spode... 4 or 5 bottles in a 10 or 12 buck box! and a bottle of Gewurztraminer for when my mom comes around ; -)

Himself likes to keep the MIL happy! The FIL loves scotch also, so the boys are good to go!
