    Re: Cheap But Good Wine

    A few years back we were buying a lot Reynolds Vineyards' Shiraz. I remember it being cheap and damn tasty. I think it was an Australian blend of Shiraz/Cab. It was something like 8 bux at super Target.

    Why spend $30 or $50 if you can get quality at such a price?

    I looked for this in a couple of LCBO locations and came up empty. Perhaps I'm looking in the wrong aisles?
    Whisk(e)y - a bargain at any price !!!

    A Cajun chef of my acquaintance has a great comment, 'if the wine ain't good enough to drink don't cook with it'.

    Thumbs up Re: Cheap But Good Wine

    I am drinking a 2009 Pinot Noir from Cono Sur (Southern Cone) Vineyards in Chile. I don't remember exactly what I paid for it, but it was less than $10 at Costco. It had a neck tag stating that it was named Budget Wine of the Year, or something like that.

    It is wonderfully pleasant, with all sorts of genuinely fruity notes, which is what I like from any wine.
