Red Wine?

Post by joegoat »

Alright, favorite reds? Whether you have it nailed down to a favorite bottle or just a type of red, what fruits of the vine do you enjoy?

This time of year, I like a good Cabernet Sauvignon. Blackstone is one I go back to. $8 a bottle and it has some nice spice with the dark fruit. I'll get a Zinfandel to switch things up, but a good Cabernet usually hits the spot for me.
In warmer weather, I get a Rose or White Zinfandel of the box variety and pour it over ice. Delicious and refreshing!

Merlot, whenever I can get it. Pinot Noir is a good second.

Cab-Say always tastes a bit too bitter and astringent for me.

I know very little about wine, don’t drink it often, and usually spend less than $10. That said, Malbec is our go-to. My favorite is a Malbec blend called Funckenhausen. The name makes it taste even better. It’s in the $13-14 range.

Bota box shiraz is good. I also like a couple tawny ports, but I guess that’s a separate thing.

You all mentioned my faves.

I do love port...it's been along while. (True story, Gabe and Mrs Gabe and kids stayed over one night on their way through to some other place and they gifted me a fantastic bottle of port)

I like bold reds, when I drink wine...its not all that often. I have found the Apothic line of red blends very very good for my tastes, and they have a several versions...from deep dark, whiskey barrel aged and several others. They normally run $8 to $9 and they are at most of the stores...so easy to find.

A true wine person would likely turn up their nose at the Apothic, but I like em and it seems many others do to...

I like fuller reds - merlot and cabernets. My father-in-law made his own wine and would give me a case of bottles very often. If I have a few extra bucks I'll by Josh as it's never disappointed. A little less, Fat Cat and Smoking Loon have been good to me too.

Never met a red I didn't like.

Not a fan of white wines but there haven't been too many reds I don't like. My go to's are cabs and shirahs but I appreciate them all. And for guilty pleasures I do enjoy Beaujolais but don't tell anyone.
