What is the best fruitiest red wine? Something that isn't too strong but the closest thing to fruity or sweet. I'm trying to get my mom some red wine & the ones we've tried lately are really strong or dry.
I've always prefered Cabernet but it's not for everyone. Merlot taste musty and moldy to me. I always drink my reds at room temperature, too. Brings out the flavors much more. I can't drink reds at all anymore for some reason, they wreak havok on my system, but I occasionally enjoy a good Reisling (it's white but just as good as a red)
I've always loved a good cheap Lambrusco, too, but thats probably from my formative years as an Altar Boy.
