im a big fan of this for reds, since a lot of heavier ones leave you hungover as fuck if you drink the whole bottle...

 

 

getting weekly wine tastings was the best part of waiting tables...

 

Folie a Deux's Menage Trois is an excellent cheaper wine. Strongly recommended for people trying to get into reds. They also make an awesome Cabernet.

 

By far one of my favorites..

Some others Ive tried and/or keep in my choice to drink.

 

Awesome warm weather white, but good anytime really..

A lot of wine tastings around where Im at are just for stupid old white people just like that looking to cop a buzz for free. Not saying free drink is bad but people like that are like hipsters at art shows.

 

Ruins the whole experience.

they served this at my brother's wedding. from what i remember, it was good. right now i have a bottle of rex goliath pinot grigio in my fridge. i usually just pick a bottle by how cool the label looks and if it's more than 13 bucks.

Ill drink the cheap stuff on an occasion. Usually though Ive already found good cheaps hidden in the masses. That why its always good to just randomly pick something up, but dont get me wrong theres plenty of horrible ones out there.

Cheap red wines that are acidic fuck my stomach up. So I tend to spend more on reds when I do get them.

 

So what's good to pick up from a Ralph's supermarket as that is usually where I have to buy my wine?

 

There's a great Liquor(real liquor store) somewhat near, but I never get there. Great fucking wine, beer and liquor selection.

Hmmm well usually Ill drink just about any cheap white..especially if Im lookin to get drunk. Although Im with you on the cheap reds...not only are they acidic but the taste over all is unbearable...

 

To name one or 2 off hand...

 

Rancho Zabaco Zin usually goes for like 7 or 8 bucks...there is also the reserve that goes for 20 I think..

I used to buy J Lohr Cab as a cheap Cab but it gained this special standing I guess and raised in price from 8 to 15 bucks...and Im not paying 15 bucks for J Lhor.

 

Ravens Wood isnt that bad either along with Bogle wines. I used to drink Bogles Old Vin Zin that was at a Albertsons right next to my job. Ravens Wood Zen of Zins which is a recent one isnt all that bad.

 

I had these guys a year or 2 back...cant remmeber if it WOWed me but it wasnt horrible. I had their pinot noir to be exact.

Oh and a never failing easy drinking light red that is found just about anywhere...

Merlot i couldnt find 2006 pic

 

or Masi Amarone

1036938x.jpg

 

these are both very good.

i went on two wine flights when i was in sf with ex, she was quite the aficionado, im not really but the 2 i just dropped are by far the best ive had. the second is kind of expensive. Trader Joes has a pretty good selection, they use to have 2 buck Chuck but now i think its 2.99

my uncle is a huge wine-o its too much of an expensive hobby for me. but i enjoy a glass

Nice post Croc Tears

 

Amarones are typically 30 dollars and up. I paid 80 for one last year. Very complex and very much worth the money.

 

Dont feel like spending the money but you want to kinda grasp what the experience is like look for Ripasso Valpolicella, theyre usually 7-15 dollars. In short it is basically Valpolicella wine with Amarone grape skins to make it more complex. You get to taste the attributes to kinda feel it out before going for the big bucks.
