Need Pinot Noir and Merlot Recs...

ChrissyMc | Dec 13, 2007 11:41 AM

I need some wine recommendations and I'm hoping you guys can help. I am making up a wine basket for my husband, and I'd like a few new wines to introduce him to. We're both new to the joys of wine, so any help would be really appreciated. He likes Pinot Noir, Merlot and a South African wine that is a blend of cabernet sauvignon and merlot. He really enjoys wine with a strong berry flavor. I'm looking for something in the $15-20 range, but lower is okay. I haven't yet decided if I am including chocolates or cheese in the basket. I may have to make 2 baskets! If anyone can suggest good chocolates or cheese with this kind of wine, I'd be grateful.
I live in Philly, close to New Jersey, so buying my wine in Jersey is an option. Thanks for your help!
