Inexpensive reds for expensive tastebuds?

Al_Pal | Apr 12, 2008 09:54 PM

I'm trying desperately to get into red wine, but I'm encountering a bit of a problem. The only reds I seem to enjoy come with hefty price tags. Ideally, I'd like to find something around $20 or less. The problem is that most of the reds I've tried in that range are either god-awful or completely unremarkable. While I have no problem shelling out for a nice bottle on a special occasion, I would really like to find a couple reds that I can drink on a daily basis without completely breaking my bank.

I'm a big fan of Silver Oak (and, to a lesser extent, Caymus). I like full-bodied wines that aren't too acidic and have a very smooth finish. Any suggestions?
