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. :lol:

Sweetness Code = Description = Grams of sugar per litre of wine
0 = Very dry = 0-5
1-2 = Off-dry = 5-25
3-4 = Medium = 25-45
5-6 = Sweet = 45-65
7-10 = Very sweet = 65-105+

Most people love Shiraz...its usually a pretty safe place to go...

and if your looking to impress without spending more than $20 per bottle....get Yellowtail. its the most popular and most drank wine in australia and a massive favorite for middle range wine drinkers worldwide...very easy to find

Best wine I've ever had is Bordeaux 1997-99.

What you're looking for, however, is Shiraz. Which isn't that bad if you get one of the older years.
