I will be attending a wine and food tasting party next weekend. The hostess will be providing several wines to taste but is also encouraging us to bring a bottle to share. As for criteria, my friends prefer zins and syrahs rather than lighter bodied wines. I want to spend around $20-25 and I have access to several good places to purchase wine. I don't know if she has a region in mind but I don't think she'd get bent out of shape if I showed up with a bottle of wine from the region she has chosen. Usually our event starts out very structured and educational but after a while we get very goofy. Any suggestions are appreciated.
