Same! Boxes of wine are never anything but delicious... lol
I like whatever cabarnet is cheap. The more I pay for it the more bitter and gross it seems to taste.
"Ah, those endless forests, and their horror-haunted gloom! For what eternities have I wandered through them, a timid, hunted creature, starting at the least sound, frightened of my own shadow, keyed-up, ever alert and vigilant, ready on the instant to dash away in mad flight for my life. For I was the prey of all manner of fierce life that dwelt in the forest, and it was in ecstasies of fear that I fled before the hunting monsters."
I'm not too picky when it comes to wine. I remember my roommates and I playing "wine pong" with one of those jugs of Sangria to change things up. It was a very fun night . I've tried a few brands from the store, and they've all been hit and miss.
Most of the wine that I drink comes from a good friend of mine, though. He and his family make it, and he'll give me a few bottles here and there for helping him with his math homework. The best wine that I've ever had was some pear wine from him. I could drink that like water.
In matters of style, swim with the current. In matters of principle, stand like a rock.

I have been making my own wine for a couple of years now, and I can't drink most cheaper store bought wines now. My favourite white is Muller Thurgau I made 30 bottles about a year ago, and they are all gone so I have another batch on the go. Everyone who has tried it has loved it!! I just finished a batch of Italian Amarone about three months ago which has an extra fermentation step resulting in a high alcohol, and it is great!!! I have also been on a bit of a Cabernet Franc kick lately, they seem to go with a lot of different foods, or great on its own!!!
For bubbly Barefoot vineyards makes a killer Moscato spumante that is now my go to bubbly, it is fairly sweet, and easy to drink, almost too easy!!!

The guy down the street from me, from whom I get my eggs, also makes all kinds of wines. And they're all better than ANY $20 bottle I've had. I'm so spoiled now; I almost cringe when I have to get one from the store. I have an apple /grape wine ready to try that I'm pretty excited about.
Oh, and he gives me most of them for around 5 bucks a bottle.
