I see you like fruit bombs. For reds I’m more into natural wines. They are doing some amazing things in Spain and prices are reasonable. Other than that Chilean reds are also excellent value.
For whites I’ve personally gone off the NZ Sauv blancs but they are very citrusy, and dare I say thirst quenching on a hot summer day. These and Cali oaked chards are a great initiation to wine as they are very distinctive.
Still partial to French Sauv blancs and unoaked chards. For oaked you need get up over $30 price range to get anything better than American but well worth it. Less vanilla and more buttery, usually sugar content is lower.
