Phantom, all of Rebec's wines are nice. I'm not a fan of their Sweet Sofia, but a lot of folks like it. They make an excellent Gewurtztraminer, as well. That's another sweet wine, but not overwhelmingly so.

Try Asti Spumante it is a sparkling wine but should be sweet enough for you.
There is white merlot also.
STG MD 20/20 is some powerful stuff. The MD stands for Mogen David. The Star of David. Its Kosher. Shalom

Farnese Casale Vecchio Montepulciano D'abruzzo 2010, Abruzzo - WineAlign

I just had this wine over Christmas. Holy cow is it good. I hate dry wines, and the too sweet ones give me headaches. This one was a perfect in between. It comes a in a lot of different varieties. I'm pretty sure the one in the pic is the one I had.

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

I love Bug Juice white wine. Can't remember if there's a more specific name for it. I wasn't a huge fan of the red though. I also liked B Lovely Late Harvest.

And uh... there's always...*cough*arbor mist*cough*.

Now that you are 21, celebrate by going on a wine tasting. It's so much fun and it's a good way to figure out what you like without spending a fortune on bottles of wine.

That is what I plan on doing. There are a few good and well recommended wineries close to me. My aunt wants to take me out one day for a tasting as she doesn't see me very often. I'm all for it haha.

Also, I can give two wine reviews haha. My uncle got me two bottles of wine because he felt bad he was out of state for my birthday and missed it. He got me a bottle of Valenzano Blueberry Wine (Valanzano is a well known local winery around here) and he got me a bottle of Beringer Pink Moscato. Both were yummy!

The blueberry wine was good and had an end note of tartness. When I first sipped it I thought I was drinking blueberry jam but then the tartness popped up and cut the sweetness and it was near perfect. Very yummy and I would definitely recommend.

The pink Moscato was good too. I had a glass of that last night while reading one of my favorite books (for the fifth or so time haha). As for taste it was really nice. It was sweet but not so much and it was fruity. It was also really, really smooth. I liked it a lot and would also recommend it.

Thanks for all of the recommendations guys! I can't wait to try some others, well I can but I can't haha.

www.wvwines.com Their pear wine is really really good. As well as other fruit wines. As well as Van Buren (in Red Wines).

Too bad Maryland doesn't allow to ship wines or I'd order some... (otherwise I buy when I go to Harpers Ferry).
