I love red wine myself and veer towards medium bodied fruity reds. I like to switch wines quite often so rarely remember the names. Having said that there are two wines I buy in Dunnes which always work well on any occasion: [b:2mogqin9]Cono Sur Cabernet Sauvignon [/b:2mogqin9](picture of a bicycle on the label) and my current fave which always seems to fly off the shelves is called [b:2mogqin9]Zona [/b:2mogqin9](only in Dunnes as far as I know)- I think that's also a Cabernet Sauvignon. Hope this helps!

[quote="StupidSexyFlanders":2mbisshv]Here are a few of our favourites: Wyndham Estate Bin 555 Shiraz[/quote:2mbisshv] I looove this wine, and it's strong!! :hic From the wines you've said SSF it looks like we have similar taste, if you're looking for a nice bottle for a special occasion try mad fish shiraz, it's 18.50 a bottle but i got it at my birthday and it's gooooorgeous! OP if you want to get a few bottles the cimarosa shiraz from lidl is really nice and only 4.99 a bottle! or lost sheep in marks is gorgeous and 8 euro. if you want to spend a bit more then try the rosemount shiraz and wolfblass yellow label shiraz, they're lovely and around 11/12 euro

If you are near a SuperValu Nugan Estate Shiraz is a fab red.

I love Blossom Hill red. It's so light, fruity and easy to drink. Paulita red wine is lovely too as is Wolf Blass.
