Anyone have a suggestion for the best red wine for cooking might be?

Specifically, what should I use when making Moke chicken? Theres a thread on here for it, and I have made it before, using red wine, soy sauce, sugar, garlic powder and sriracha for the marinade.

I used cabernet sauvignon both times, but this time the wine taste was really overpowering.

Is there a better kind to use? (ie:merlot, shiraz, etc?)

Depends on the recipe.. a lot of times, it doesn't really matter.  If you're looking for something a little lighter, you might try a pinot noir.

Cab Sauv is a big red wine so try something lighter like a Pinot Noir.

 I use George Debouf because he sells 1 cup singles. Plus its decent quality.
