Again, on Moses' suggestion, I am checking out more spanish/portuguese wines these days. Had this one tonight. Outstanding for $10.

Nice. Take a look for Altano by Symington Estates (Portuguese), and any Crasto wines also from Portugal.

I'm just starting to drink wine for a year or so. I don't have anything to add to this thread for now, but thanks for all the suggestions.

Also, I am debating on buying several bottles from empire wine online. Since I'm so new, I thought I would start buying the under $20 bottles that are rated 90+. Think thats a good starting point?

You can try starting with a country or region. Read up on the region, try the wines famous from the region. Take note of the grapes used and apply everything you learned to the next region. France is where I'd start, with Italy 2nd.

My favorite budget wine is Apothic Red. It is a blend, but for 9.99-11.99 it is one of the best!

Just tried two bottles of this, and it will become a regular staple in our rack.

G/f had some 14 hands chardonnay. She said she really liked it and I have seen it as low as $9 for a bottle.

Wasn't too crazy about that one. If memory serves right, it was quite extracted & juicy. Too new world style for me. Does get a lot of accolades though.

Yah I am new to wine so I have no idea what is meant to be what, I just know that to me it tastes good.
