If you like fruity reds I would try the 2004 or 2005 Water Wheel Memzie. 90 or 91 points by RP and you should be able to find it for $12-14. Plenty of fruit with this one.
If you like a slightly more structured red but still heavy on the fruit, try the Pillar Box Red. You usually can find it for around $10 and also another 90 or 91 by RP.
Both of these wines are Australian Shiraz based blends and are good for everyday drinking and bringing to a friends for a BBQ.
