My doctor recently told me I shouldn't drink so much beer and liquor and should replace it with wine- preferably red because it won't jack with my blood sugar as much and is generally healthier. The thing is I have almost always found red wine to be kind of tannic, acidic and bitter and just not very tasty to me. Growing up I would drink my parents cheap Carlo Rossi Paisano wine (nasty!) and boxed wine. I wasn't drinking it for the taste.
Recently I told a friend about this and she bought me a bottle of Malbec wine from Argentina which was really dark but there was not much off-putting about it and it wasn't bad at all. However it is not available at my little corner liquor store. I also have tried some white Merlot which was okay.
Really I am clueless and don't know the difference between a Pinot Noir and a Cabernet. Can anyone recommend some other wines that would be fairly mild tasting for me to try? Also easy to find and not overly expensive? Any advice would be most appreciated!
