Suggestions for slightly sweet red wine?

Ha! Hazlitt's definitely seems to promote its Red Cat, almost to the exclusion of its other wines (just check out their website). As a nondrinker (and who am I kidding, I still am and probably always will be essentially a nondrinker), an opinion from a pro is always welcome! I'll never become a connoisseur, but since there is no shortage of them within my own family and my coworkers, the wine business has no need to worry!
Thanks for the info & kindness, Jason!

If you could only eat products from ONE animal for the rest of your life...

So . . . to answer the question, cow (cow's milk cheeses rule!).

Very infrequently - more like three times in the past year at family get togethers (wines provided by family members who know what they're doing). As I was previously a teetotaler for over three decades, it would probably shock everyone if I started drinking twice a week! I've tried mid-priced merlot and pinot noir, but disliked both. The Red Cat, which I researched and purchased myself, was definitely a keeper. Thanks for asking.

I could do without any kind of meat (and often do), but I could never give up cheese - Wensleydale with Cranberries, While Stilton with Apricots, Monterey Jack with Jalapenos . . . the list is endless (Thank You, Wegmans!)!

Scrambled eggs - add dairy?

When I was eating low-carb, I always added a splash of heavy cream, but half & half or milk works just as well - that and cooking over moderate heat makes the scrambled eggs light & fluffy - yum!

I, too, am a complete wine novice (having been an abstainer from all alcohol for the past 33 years). Having tried dry wines (both red and white) I've come to the conclusion that I definitely prefer sweet wines. A friend had suggested Red Cat produced & bottled by Hazlitt Vineyards located in the beautiful Fingerlakes region of New York (Seneca Lake to be precise - I live about an hour away in Central New York - a tasting tour to their vineyards is in my future). All I can say is, "WOW!" A fruity, sweet, red wine which is light and pleasant - delicious! Goes with anything - steaks, burgers, pizza . . . anything! I'm drinking a glass right now while I'm roasting a turkey breast in the oven for dinner . . . it's going to be a good night! (Extremely affordable too - in my area each bottle costs around $10!) Wine snobs be darned!
