I don't think I'm alone in my level of wine connoisseurship, in that I enjoy an occasional glass of wine, but am financially incapabable of plunking down $50 regularly; I'm more likely to drink $7 plonk. Any forum members that would deign to make some 2005 recommendations on bottles under $15 that one might actually be able to track down? Personally - and I am NO expert - I like: - Rosemount - Shiraz - no special, single vineyard stuff, just v. drinkable, IMHO. - Bonny Doon - Big House Red - ditto - (Ruffino? unsure - yellow label with print and red writing - that's specific, right?) - Chianti - great with spaghetti and meatbawls. I've never tried the kind in the basket... - BV Coastal - all varietals - Estancia - Â Pinot Grigio - Whatever vineyard - "vinho verde" - very light portuguese white (heard it was popular table wine in america mid-century) Feel free to tell me I'm a victim of wine marketing or otherwise a rube.
