I am not going to pretend to know anything about wine. I don't. I like to drink wine. But, pretty much just like the kind I like. I don't appreciate all varietals. I don't understand nuances. The way I describe wine is like, "that was too watery" "that was too sweet" "that was nice & full tasting..."
I like Sauvignon Blanc, but I never can taste the grapefruit or melon. I like Cab, but I don't ever taste the blackberries. It sort of just tastes like wine to me.
I found this list of wines under $10 which looks great. I've never tried any of the wines, nor have I ever heard of them. I would like to give some of them a try.
But, I don't make it to the-little-wine-shop-that- has-everything very often.
Here are my favorites that you can find at Nob Hill or Trader Joe's or Costco or wherever.
All these picks are under $10 & can be often found for around or under $5 if you get 'em on sale.

We like Cabernet, but other varietals are good, too.
and for a cheap pairing - we had this the other night with out Piroshkis & it was so good. It's also good with Tater Tots.
I never wanted to try this wine, cuz it kinda has a cheap look. And, it is cheap. So, I figured it was bad for sure. But, I tried it. And, it is good. They've won medals for just about all their varietals.
Again, we like the Cab & also the Savingnon Blanc.
