    Like some red with dinner on occasion and find this to be a good mix of inexpensive and tasty.

    Yellow Tail or Black Opal were the two entry wines back in my uni days

    I normally only drink wine because I'm with some chick drinking wine and I'm just drinking it to get drunk, but if I'm drinking for taste, I prefer dry reds. I discovered this Chilean blend when I worked at a liquor store back when I had more hair and less of it was grey. It's a Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Petit Verdot.

    I had the Pinot version of this yesterday for the first time. Was a good drop.

    I can tell the difference from cheap wine and good stuff. Yet mid tier to the great ones not so much. I do like red with meals though.

    Usually Blauen Zweigelt made in Austria from the Winemaker Umathum for around 10 bucks a bottle.

    Most of the time I like to try new stuff. Don't really have a brand I hold onto.

    It's rare to find a wine that's unpleasant if you spend a few pounds nowadays. Gone are the days a bottle might turn your tongue blue.

    I prefer red.

    This one's my regular

    I like hedonistic fruit bombs. Red wine with high alcohol content, but not the real cheap shit that bums drink.

    I drink just about all the style depending on the season and what I am eating, though I tend to stick to dry wines.

    Usually in September it's still pretty hot so I drink mostly white wine, Chilean Sauvignon Blanc for cheap everyday white, a step up I'd take Alsace Riesling especially if I am having chicken/seafood and prosecco for cheap sparkling wine on the weekend.

    During colder months, I stick to reds and whiskey.

    Someone recommended Yellow Tail to me recently.

    <mma3>

    Oh we are doing cheap and nasty now. I'll raise you this...

    No exaggeration after drinking two bottles ($14), and 15 minutes of madness. Three grown men were sleeping by 3pm.
