A good bottle of wine...

I'd like to buy a special bottle of wine for a secret Valentine, and I'm totally at a loss. I went to the liquor store and just stood there. Haven't had that task for a great many years. I sent my husband but he came home with Raging Bull, a little red and more than a little dry. I remember buying a nice bottle of rose, but can't remember the name of it. What a cheap date eh! Any suggestions? I know I should look in the booze book, but they always seems so complex. HELP!

I feel like a newby when it comes to wine, I know what I like, but is it o.k. for a gift? I'd think maybe a winery tour is in order here. Any suggestions?

I had to edit this post, Remember when we use to buy those bottles of wine with the rafia around it so you could then melt candles all over it. I don't think the wine was particularly good, but it was the "thing" to do.

Irene, I think a "Pintal" brand would be fine!

I don't drink, but those I have bought for in past like YELLOW TAIL.

I got hooked on Fat Bastard, both White and red are excellent. Citra is not bad either.
