Excellent suggestion ^^^

Not sure where you're located but Seeya Later Ranch has a great one called Threeway Pinot Noir(LOL at the name) but it's good, it's a light, crisp red with sweet fruit flavour. Believe it's blended with a pinot gris and pinot grigio.

And it's price point is pretty close to Kenwood, might be a tad higher if it's being imported to the states.

Annnnddd....just for flavor..

Just go to a good merchant and tell him you want a red wine that is fruit forward with little tannins.

How much access do you gentlemen have to imported wines, particularly Australian wines? I can recommend some absolute rippers that shouldn't break the bank...I live right in the middle of God's country re. wines. Happy to throw some suggestions your way.

Pinot is probably the way to go. Cab franc and merlots can be great too although they lack a lot of structure and are best used as blends. Oregon (Willemette Valley especially) and Burgundy France make delicious wines.

Try some of the right bank Bordeaux blends. Pomerol and St Emillion are the regions for Merlot based Bordeaux and TEND to be lighter in style.

i like chillian wine called Miraflora, it has very subtle and light taste. It is semi-sweet, i prefer white rather than red Miraflora.

Thank you, I'll try that ...as for now, as in the past few months since i made this thread, I have been only drinking Lambruscos, Reunite is the only brand i can find of that..tried the other reds, didnt really like em, thanks everyone on this thread..

My wife and I enjoy several types of wines for various occasions. Last night being Thanksgiving, we oppened one of our "Special Occasion" bottles: Bella Gloss Pinot Noir. It's a fairly high end (for us) Pinot from Oregon that's around $40, but has a very respectable "little brother" called Meomi, around $20. I would describe it as very well balanced with a silky mouth feel. NOM NOM NOM.
