Good, sweet red wines...?!

Question: Good, sweet red wines!.!.!.!?
With the chilly weather finally setting in here in central Texas it is time for me to put away the beer and warm up to the wine!. I love a chilly night with several glasses of wine, it is so warming and yummy - ah the warm head sensation!.

I prefer reds to white wine, but don't discriminate with alcohol much!. I am by no means a wine connoisseur, but I have had the pleasure of a wine tour through Napa Valley so I have some knowledge of the wines, but not the brands as much and I love experimenting with wine!. It is rare for me to purchase the same bottle, but I do have a small list of favorites!. My preference are sweet reds, ports are of course great and shiraz has been my current companion!.

So please tell me what are some great red wines to try and if there is a food that you really like them with!.

My recommendation to share, Escape Shiraz a very sweet, affordable wine! Worth the try!Www@FoodAQ@Com

I have a small winery in PA that I order from!. http://www!.cloverhillwinery!.com/
My favorites the DeChaunac!. It's semi-sweet!.!.!. good to drink as you're getting dinner ready!. Usually just slightly chilled!.!.!.!. very smooth

Don't let the price fool you, they are great wines!. I have a friend who has tried every Shiraz under the sun (its all she drinks)!. I'll try to edit this after I talk to her tonight!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

I am a reisling drinker, but when I do drink red I always grab a primitivo!. There are vinyard records that indicate that it was the type of wine drank at the Last Supper!. I love this history behind it, but mostly I love the flavor!. I have had a few pretty good ones - Layer Cake NV Primitivo is a great choice!. It pairs well with any tomato based italian dish!! Enjoy!

This one is really good too!! http://marketviewliquor!.com/index-id-495!.!.!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Try Dancing Bull Red Zinfandel!. I love it!

or Robert Mondavi Cabernet Saugvinon (there are two bottles, one is around 10 bucks and the other is usually $24, so if you see the 24 dollar one first keep looking around!)

I will totally try Escape Shiraz!.!.!.Hopefully they sell it in my town!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

White Merlot, ia like white zinfadell and merlot mixed, very good!Www@FoodAQ@Com

I want to correct you a little bit!. Shiraz is not sweet and not always 'affordable'!. A Shiraz is generally fruity, peppery, and can have undernotes of smoke and tobacco!.

I think you mean fruity, not sweet!.

Chile has a bunch of nice, inexpensive Syrahs (same grape)!. Montes Alpha is one that's excellent quality but is generally under $20!.

Washington's Walla Walla area may also have some Syrahs that suit your palate!. Cougar Crest, Isenhower, Fidelitas, K Vintners, and Owen Roe all have Columbia Valley or Walla Walla area wines that are fruity with underlying spice!.

Going even fruitier, and potentially slightly 'sweeter' are the Shirazes from the Mollydooker label!. These start at about $25 and go up from there!.

Another wine from Down Under is the Penfolds Koonunga Hill Shiraz blend!. It's under $10 and my local Costco carries it!. It'a amazingly good for that price point!.

Zinfandel may also be something interesting for you!. NOT white zin, but good ole red Zinfandel!. Seghesio has a wine in the top 10 of Wine Spectator's Top 100 this year - it is a decent brand to seek out!. Cosentino also makes several tasty Zinfandels!.

I also recommend finding a good wine shop or grocery store with a great wine person and telling them what you like!. They often give the best recommendations of anyone out there!.

Funny you should ask this, Courts!.
I'm more for white wine ordinarily but it's turned so cold here I decided to try some mulled (red) wine the other night and I'm quite the convert now!.
also, coz you drink it warm I'm able to kid myself it has a certain medicinal value about it to help aid my recovery from the flu!. Better yet the label on the bottle recommends adding a dash of brandy!. I didn't have any of that but found that vodka makes a reasonable enough substitute!. It's all alcohol, isn't it, wot!Www@FoodAQ@Com

I'm on LEVEL 4! yahoooooooo
White Zinfandel is the regular brand that most people drink I think there is one by Berringers!.

I love Ferrante Wines, there in one called Jesters Blush
There is also a brand at the stores and its a white merlot!.
Breitenbach is really good they have whats called a road house red and there are many flavored wines as well like raspberry, blueberry!. The Amish really know their wine!. They have a tawny port but it comes in a barrel!.
Im a sweet and yet oak palate!. I love Merlot and some brands where its a Merlot Cabernet mix!. I'll see if I can find some more!.
Oh there is also a winery called Mon Ami they have a really wide variety!.

If you like white wines you could try Gwertz!.!.!.its a really long german looking word but Fetzer (I can't remember the spelling but they sell it at the Giant Eagles here in Ohio) makes a really good wine in that brand!.
Reisling can be sweet or dry!.!.!.!.Barefoot has a good sweet one!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
