Anyone have good red wines that are moderately priced they would recommend?

Drink moderately, for drunkeness neither keeps a secret, nor observes a promise.

I like Black Mountain Zinfandel, and Malbec, along with Tomollo (imported from Italy), which is made from organic grapes. Both of these are found at Trader Joe's.


It is not my responsibility to convince anyone of anything.

Organically produced wines tend to be lower in sulphites, so I guess I'll go for them.

For american; try Powers {also does the Badger Mountain} same grapes used as the Badger, but just isn't the Certified label.
Good easy drinking reds like the Lemberger. And a family friend.
Or wines from southern Central Oregon like Henry Estates

Getting quite addicted to the Spanish Reds, anything with a Jumila really.

THey are not cheap but worth every penny is the Australian wines from Barossa Valley, like the Spinifex.

Personally for taste I prefer single varietal grapes. Not to keen on Shiraz Cabernet or Shiraz Merlot.

Friends of mine do a Merlot Madness party annually - Some quite good reasonably priced from Australia again as well. Some names like Lennard Crossing and Taylor (?).

Haven't had too much experience with the Chilean or Argentinian yet though, or the whites from New Zealand.#

Invest in some quality Sherry and Riojas to support the dwindling 'Single-Malt Cask-Strength Unchill-Filtred Scotch Whisky' industry though. Dwindling as in that it is harder to get good casks to finish the spirits with.

Does anyone buy any wines from Costco. I notice they have a lot more organic and healthy items than Sam's club. I get organic apples, maple syrup, go greens, and etc.

I notice they have a large wine selection last time I was there. I looked for organic but didn't see any. Has anyone found any there that I may have missed.

Kenwood Zinfandel 2004. The only thing that could make this wine better would be an organic version of itself.

Jumilla is a place in Murcia apparently. Casa de la Ermita comes from there and is available as aged, certified organic wine and is made with Monastrell grapes. A bit strong for me and gets diluted with water

if you're new to drinking wine, and want to try a few different types it might be worth your while to write down what you buy and how it tasted to you.  I found an amazing wine, but didn't note what it was at the time.  when I finally went to find the bottle in my recycle storage area I had 4 bottles and could not remember which one it was.  Still not thinking at the time I didn't write down the names of those bottles, so have yet to find that wine again.  Next time I find a wine I really like I'm writing down the name.
