With the Barzon Herzog, the Cabernet is nice.

Thanks! Ben's in Bayside is currently carrying the Baron Herzog Cabernet Sauvignon, so that's the one I'll go for. It's 13% alcohol.

So 13% is pretty high alcohol content for a G-d fearing Yid who plans to drink 4 cups and fulfill the opinions of the Ran and the Rambam on volume of the cup. Maybe also grab a bottle or two of Rashi (5% alcohol) so that you can switch back and forth from low to high alcohol with the cups. Hereís what I like to do:

Cup 1: high alcohol content. My Shabbos table is filled with non Observant family, and I gotta take the tension down
Cup 2: low alcohol. Lots of mitzvos around this part of the Seder. Canít afford to be tipsy.
Cup 3: high alcohol. A little buzz goes well with extra kavana during Hallel. Sing your heart out during hallel - itís the icher (main content) of the Seder.
Cup 4: low alcohol. Itís now 2-2:30am and What I need is sleep, not so compatible with alcohol.

The Baron Herzog white zinfandel is a relatively cheap and pleasant wine.
