I finnally found, after much taste testing , a cheaper bottle of red wine that that I can drink. It is a California wine made by BAREFOOT and is a Cabernet Sauvignon. The reason I was looking for a cheaper wine is because I drink about 8oz a night which is about 2 bottles a week. This does help me with my blood work, thats my story and I am sticking to it. Give me some other cheaper red wines to try. No Boones' Farm or Thunderbird, had enough of that crap 35+ years ago.

Hasn't Barefoot won some awards? I believe I've had it before and was rather impressed with its quality given its price.

Our Daily Red, an organic no sulfite red.
I also have had very good experiences with the wines of Argentina. Affordable and tasty.

HTH,

The bottle says BAREFOOT won over 20 awards since 2005.

As long as you can guarantee the grapes were not pressed by barefoot hippies with toenail fungus.

I like Reuniti Lanbrusco (spelling?) I know its stupid but I like it in a glass with ice, drink it every night. Big bottle like $11.

Lanbrusco is too sweet for me. Now my wife likes it.

I agree.....

Stick with the Merlot and stay away from the Cab. when it comes to Charles Shaw. I think the last time I bought a case it was roughly $34

Yep. Two buck Chuck is not bad.

There are actually a lot of good wines for under $10 a bottle, but you have to experiment a lot and be prepared to eat the costs of the bad bottles.

For the money-----about $7 in my area-----I've never found anything better than Yellowtail.

Concha y Toro from Chile makes some decent cheap reds under their Frontera label.

Fat Bastard...

nice Australian with good flavor... have found it as low as 8/bottle.
Five Oaks is not so bad. 3 bucks a bottle at your local Rite Aid.
