I do not drink wine, but cook with it. Whenever I have to buy a wine, I get all flustered about it. Please help me make a good choice. I am making a brazed short rib recipe for our pre-Thanksgiving celebration, and it calls for about 6 cups of cabernet sauvignon (tripling recipe, feeding 15 people - must buy 2 bottles of wine). I noted the sales at our local store and will list my options below. I am trying to stay around $10 per bottle, but less would be nice. Unless noted, all wines are dated 2009Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi $5.98Blackstone $7.98Dancing Bull $6.98BV Coastal Estates $7.98Toasted Head $9.98Southern Hills $8.98Redwood Creek $5.98Ravens Wood 2008 $7.98Ironstone $6.98Smoking Loon $5.98Vintage Ink 2008 $10.98Forest Ville 2010 $3.50Matthew Fox $3.50Sutter Home 2010 $3.50Mirassou 2010 (didn't mark down price...)Turning Leaf 2010 $4.98I have also been told Trader Joe's has a cabernet that is about $5.00. I will be down below Tuesday, and could stop by...but it would be an extra stop.Costco has their Kirkland brand for $12.99. That place will be a zoo on Tuesday...I will go if it is really worthwhile to do so ...but really prefer not to.So, if you were buying a wine for this recipe, which one would you choose?
