    Default Rex Goliath Shiraz

    It's excellent! The Cab isn't bad either.

    Some years ago the RG Pinot Noir was the "talk of the town"
    in this NG. At that time it was produced in California and
    many folks, including me, purchased vast quantities. Now,
    the PN is a product of Italy. It's OK, cheap, and I purchase
    a few bottles from time to time. I haven't tried any other
    RGs lately but if you like them, go for it!

    Well put, Dick. RG is an example of a "brand" wine that now sources
    from all over. Other examples are Castle Rock, Cupcake, 2 Buck Chuck,
    etc. The problem is knowing what you're getting since the contents can
    change radically from year to year (or, in the case of 2BC, even lot to lot)

    Tortoise Creek is another one. When Mel Masters sourced from the
    Languedoc the wines were consistantly good and value priced at under
    $15 for a number of varietals both red and white. Since the sourcing
    changed to California for some of the varietals, the price went up and
    the quality went down.

    Ick a thousand times over. Took two sips from a glass of it a couple
    weeks ago and immediately ran for the sink to dump it. "30 Gold
    Medals," indeed. Must have gotten them out of cereal boxes.
