Hi...I've searched here a bit (no search function?) and couldn't find this exact question...forgive me if it's been asked before.
I'm visiting friends in the Wisconsin this weekend and I've been asked to bring a dry Napa or Sonoma red wine. Can anyone recommend the best $10 red wine that might be most unique to or representative of Northern California? Also, if you know an anecdote about why this wine is special or unique to NorCA, I'd love to hear it. Also, what YEAR am I supposed to buy? These folks will want to open the bottle of whatever I bring Friday night...
My request was for red, but if you know a wonderful white wine that fits the bill better except for its whiteness, I would love to hear about it,too.
Finally, I would like to be able to buy said wine in San Francisco proper. Don't have time to shoot across any bridges before I leave for my trip.
