I've just figured out that it could cost me a whole lot of money and take a whole lot of time to try every red blend, cabernet, pinot, and zinfandel out there under $15 (not that there are many pinots in that price range) to find one or a few that I could have as my 'daily drinker'.
I've tried some, haven't found one. I like big reds, lots of huge jammy nose, I'm not a fan of spice but can do it (like a Syrah/Shiraz), prefer the berry and fruit flavors over pepper and leather, and like a clean finish. I like chewy but not high in tannins, so it can't taste very young - that's my biggest problem.
Any recommendations for me to narrow down my search? Wines available readily at Trader Joes and Costco particularly appreciated...
