Red fruity smooth wine

Posted by Rhonda11, Feb 18, 2015.

Interesting in a red wine something similar to Taylor Port I think I got a little sick from it yesterday so I either need a better brand or drunk it with the wrong food but I definitely like the taste. The cost was $7

Do you mean you "are interested in a red wine similar to..." ?  How many glasses did you have?  If only a couple, then perhaps the alcohol content was a bit much for you.  I don't think I could recommend anything that would be like the port that would be cheaper than $30.  However, if you want something pretty full bodied, try an Aussie shiraz that fits your budget and let it breathe for a couple hours before drinking.

Well if you try to drink only a half bottle at a time, you're probably OK. Then work your way up to the whole bottle.

 I personally have enjoyed the Montoya Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa, and I usually pick it up from Total Wines out here in Virginia.

If you like port  [sweet with a raisin and almond style fruit] then you will almost certainly like a banyuls or maury which are similar but with less alchol and more fruit  You should only have a couple of glasses of port at at time because it is a lot stronger than most wines [20% ABV ]
