Best Red Wine Blends Under $20
Try these delicious red blends under $20, $15, and even under $10!
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).
