Hi, I am a college student who enjoys cigars and wine a lot. I've found a few good moderately priced cigars, but I was wondering if any of you out there had some recommendations for good wine under $10-12.
thanks, im looking for a few reds and a few whites i can drink out in the porch with a few friends at night, maybe involving cigars. I guess not too dry but not too sweet, something in between. I dont really know a lot about wines.
I'm not a white fan, but for reds in that price range I really like Blackstone Merlot (about $8) and Black Opal Merlot/Cabernet Blend(same). Other than that, I agree that $3 buck Chuck Cabernet is pretty nice.
I could go on and on and and on.
But here are a couple of my favorites
Forest Glen merlot: I have sold more glasses and bottle of this wine while waiting tables. Very consistent year to year. All around good wine that is a crowd pleaser.
Covey Run Cab Sav; fun wine with great body.
Mark West Pinot Noir; this might be a little on the higher side of your spending limit but its a great wine.
Falseco Vitano: great italina red; both complex and smooth. Kinda dark and dry. Very interesting
Little penguin chardonnay: good fruit and a little buttery on the finish. Goes great with a lot of different food. A 1.75 liter costs 12 bucks. That is bang for your buck.
