Best Red Wine Blends Under 20

Some of the most famous wines in the world are red blends. Bordeaux, Rioja, Red Rhône, and Amarone della Valpolicella are a few examples, and they can be complex, age-worthy, and all around legendary wines.

However, when many of us think "red wine blend," we don't think first of Bordeaux. Instead, we think of approachable red wines that have all of the best characteristics of our favorite grapes. Many of these red wine blends come from California, but places like Washington, Oregon, and other new world locations also produce excellent bottles. These wines are typically smooth, nicely balanced, and great for enjoying with food. Some may have a little bit of residual sugar, but not all will.

This list is devoted to these approachable red wine blends under $20. They're crowd pleasers, and they're perfect for enjoying on any weekend or weeknight. Enjoy these red wines with food, or simply sip on a glass after a long day at work. These blends might not be the famous red wine blends from France, but they may become famous in your house after you try a few of them (they'll definitely be famous where your wallet is concerned).

You're going to love these red wine blends under $20. It's nice that they have a price point under $20, because you will definitely want to buy more than one bottle!

They are great with food, including grilled red meat, grilled mushrooms, and spicy barbecue.
