Default All Abooot WiNE!

Lately I have not had much money so my pot and beer stash has been depleted. At my old house though there is still tons of wine, since my parents enjoy it quite often. I am no aficionado considering I cant even stand red wine alone and have to mix it with something else. My question is:

What do you know about White vs Red wines? I would like to try some nicer wines and some more whites. My library of wine consists almost entirely of reds, and cheap ones at that.

I wish i could help but my stance on wine is that red beats white and i may as well get the cheapest corner shop piss because it all tastes the same to me anyway!

I do like red wine. I just couldn't give a toss what it is. It's like if i end up getting it in a restaurant, whoever im with might wanna try it first or might ask the waiter about the different ones but im just wanting him to hurry up and give me the bottle so i can drink it.

I know my way around a box of Franzia

No, but this is what I've found... red wine is heavier and more acidic. White wine tends to be more fruit based (hints of pears, apples, stuff like that) while red has a different palate (leather, earthy, etc) but that's not universally true by any stretch.

White wine is good in its own right - Chardonnay with seafood pasta works very well - although most people prefer red. My favorite wines are Zin (Zinfandel, a heavy /rich / acidic monster, and they are great with steak so it's sort of a MAN wine) and Port (a dessert wine served in a small glass, meant for sipping, high alcohol content and great with chocolate - ohh, sexy).

I live in Northern California so if you have any wine questions I'll try to conjure what I've learned from living in Wine Country.

EDIT: Good white wines- Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio. I'm not a wine snob, not very picky at all, but I know for sure the best white wine I've tasted was a 2008 La Crema Chardonnay. It's a bit pricey ($30+ category) but well worth it.

Any wine that doesn't make me scrunch my face is good wine in my book. And yes, I have had such wine.

Thanks for the good answer. Is one typically more expensive than the other?

What you should had said was "I'm not a Wine Commonsewer" just remember it's cigar aficianado and wine commonsewer - you are mixing metaphors.

btw Portuguese Port thats all you need to know.

I'm quite partial to a cheap Merlot. I really haven't subscribed to one particular brand as I don't drink wine very much, as I'm more of a whisky and beer man.
