Recently, I had some Oyster Bay Red from New Zealand, was 12.99$ a bottle. It did not have a pencil lead finish. It was smooth, subtle fruit/tartness on the front, and a clean back end, no leady after taste.

Pepperwood Grove pinot noir, from Chile, $6.99 a bottle, a burgundy-style pinot with none of the barnyard/earth of some West Coast versions. And a whole lot less than a Russian River or Carneros pinot noir. Also, Wichita Falls Desperado Red, a Texas red blend of mostly petit sirah, aged at least three years before release, for $8. Fruit-forward yet toasty, with a vanilla/caramel finish.

Sounds decent, I'll be on the lookout, thanks.

I was telling my brother the year on a bottle of wine I had and he said "Oh, I don't like that OLD wine. I like NEW wine." New wine is cheaper, too!

in my experience this all depends on the brand, some old wines are terrible. you can get 2008 vintages that are 12 bucks and have a harsh after taste. Compare that to a 30 dollar bottle of 2011. It's not always the case, but in general older wines have another level of flavor that newer grapes never have. some people just like the cheap stuff, its what theyre used to. i know people that dislike grassfed beef, and will only eat the corn fed beef, its something theyve grown accustom to.

There are a variety of New Zealand sauvignon blancs that taste great and are economical. Urlar is a favorite of mine.
