Question of the week: Favorite wine?

With all the wine tastings and wine dinners and Winefests Wichita has, we all ought to be grape experts by now.

My question this week: What’s your favorite variety of wine? And what food do you like to pair it with?

I’m a Malbec/Cabernet Sauvignon girl when it comes to red, although I also appreciate Pinot Noir. I love to drink all of the above with rare steak and with dark chocolate. As for white, I’m addicted to Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand’s Marlbourough region, and I’m always on the hunt for bottles on sale in local liquor stores for $9 or less, so if you see a Cupcake, Nimbus, Nobilo, Starborough or Monkey Bay bottle on sale in this price range anywhere locally, you’d better call me. Ya hear?
