Hi Friends! I love wine, especially red wine. If you are just venturing into wine, it can be overwhelming with all the different types, especially with Red wine. Wine is a great Hostess gift when attending all those Holiday parties. Not to mention, giving it to friends because the holidays with family can be stressful lol! 😉
These are my Top 5 Red Wines that you can find in almost every store and they are all under $10, so bonus!!
Apothic Wines Red Blend – $7.95 – $9.99
This is probably one of my favorite wines because the flavor is always great and it is budget friendly. It has a great smooth taste and is great for a beginner in wine. You will find a few hints of mocha, black cherry, and vanilla. It also pairs well with just about everything. They also have Apothic Dark, Apothic Crush, and a few other varieties that are good.
Menga’ A Trois’ – Red Blend $7.98 – $9.99
This one is another top choice and like the Apothic Red, has a great smooth flavor. This is another wine that pairs well with most dishes and you will taste blackberry and raspberry flavors.
Alamos Malbec – $8.99 – $9.99
If you are looking to change up the typical Red Blend, then give this one a try. Malbec is a type of wine with grapes from Argentina. This one will have flavors of black cherry, and plum and pairs well grilled meat.
Gnarly Head Authentic Black – $8.99 – 9.99
This wine has bold flavors of fruit with a hint dark chocolate. This wine pairs well with pizza, venison dishes, or steak.
Bogle Vineyards Merlot $8.99 – $9.99
This Merlot is a little darker in flavor, with hints of cherries and plum, but still has a smooth finish. It pairs great with just about everything from pizza to chicken.
