    My preference is for whites over red.  I never met a merlot I liked but that is simply personal preference.  I used to like them as dry as I could get them but now I've turned more to mis range dry or semi-dry or semi-sweet.  Also, try a god ice wine-expensive but really wonderful.  For regular drinking try a Riesling or a Gewurtztraminer (If you're in the Midwest near the Oliver WInery in Indiana they have wonderful selections!  Vignoles are nice also.  Pinot Grigios are usually tasty.  Oliver also makes a very nice Traminette.  Local liquer stores also often have tastings.

     For a first timer, try something mellow like Duplin's Black River Red or Queen Anne's Revenge.

    I don't -- I tried a sample glass at Olive Garden one time, and didn't care for it at all.  So I am no help to you...  Good luck on your qine quest.

    But, with that being said... I also don't drink alcohol in general... the only thing I can taste is the burning/bitter taste of the alcohol in it instead of all the other "flavors" that you are suppose to taste.

    I love wine, but have not had any for awhile now.  Maybe because my husband is not a drinker.  For someone who has never had any wine, I would suggest a Zinfandel, because they are sweeter.  Although it really depends on your taste.    Other wine(s) to try would be Reislings (white wine).  Red wine, is an aquired taste.

    I love any of the Arbor Mists. I guess they are considered wine. I never get a headache from them like I do other wines.
