Here's a rundown and some key quotes on folks' recommendations, which are mostly a who's who of the supermarket wine shelf (some bottom shelf, some top). Which of these would YOU endorse? (I haven't tried hardly any...)
- Yellow Tail Sangria
Stella Rosa Black
Winking Owl Cabernet
Gnarly Head Old Vine Zin
Robert Mondavi Cabernet aged in Bourbon Barrels
"anything from Molly Dooker or Peter Lehmann Wines - if you want a big, juicy, dark Aussie shiraz I am partial to the Molly Dooker Boxer Shiraz. Peter Lehmann is a little more delicate -- and affordable."
Cooper and Thief - "Bourbon barrel aged red that changed my life." "One or two glasses and you're done lol! 17% alcohol and almost a fortified wine, but dang it's delicious!" "100% right"
19 Crimes - "I like it bc it's not tooooo dry.... Now, I enjoy a dry red BUT sometimes I want something easier to wind (or wine) down with."
Flipside Red - "I bought it exclusively because of the label design and its become my go to"
- Lapierre Raisins Gaulois - "cherry blossoms, blood orange peel and a touch of baking spice!"
Au Bon Climat Pinot Noir, G.D. Vajra Langhe Rosso or Barbera d'Alba, Altesino Rosso di Montalcino, Cass Mouvedre, Round Pond Kith and Kin Cabernet and Maysara 3 Degrees Pinot Noir are all great values.
