thanks for the suggestions. A Rosenblum Aparicio from Amador Co. I will try next. I remembered having ribs with some Sweeter BBQ sauces like with honey-mustard which killed some Zins, but the Rosenblum Aparicio Zin stood up to the sweeter BBQ sauces quite well.
I will also try a riesling and a Pinot as suggested. I just got a case of the 2003 MacPhail RRV Pinot (WS95), should be pretty good.
Oh just looked at the Albertson's Ad, Johnsonville Brats 2 packages for $6, starts friday!
