Happy Monday, friends!
I get asked about inexpensive “everyday” reds all the time. I’m like everyone else who doesn’t want to drop a lot on a weeknight bottle. Below are a few reds under $25 I highly recommend.
I buy a lot of my everyday reds at winestore. They have locations all over NC, and if you aren’t local you can also buy online or you can call one of the stores, and they will ship you anything, anywhere. They will even keep your credit card on file for easier reordering. They do not have as large of a selection as some of the bigger retailers, but they offer some of the best prices I’ve seen out there for what they do have.
I also order from wine.com just for the sake of ease—i.e. you open your front door, there’s your wine! If you are new to wine.com use code “FEBNEW20” to receive $20 off your order of $99 or more.
I won’t go into a lot of detail about the list below. When you’re spending $25 and under on red, my guess is you aren’t looking for tasting notes so much as to just get in the bottle quickly at the end of the day! But these are all big, fruit-forward, easy-drinking reds. I’ll link to wine.com and/or winestore below for each one.
Gundlach Bundschu Mountain Cuvee 2016
DAOU Vineyards Pessimist Red Blend 2016
Banshee Mordecai Proprietary Red 2015
Wines of Substance Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
Lastly, by request—I promise I’ll do a $12 and under post soon!
