  • Lambrusco, its good, a bit sweet for my taste but good none the less.

  • I agree, if you really like sweet, Lambrusco is great. I consider it kinda of a red wine version of champagne, since they're both fizzy wines.

    A more traditional sweet red wine is Shiraz. I prefer it to Merlot, which is also high on the wine list.

  • I love a good Merlot but I agree if you want something sweeter, Shiraz would be good

  • Brachetto. A sparkling, sweet red Italian wine. Sooooo goooood! Or Fragolino. Both are dessert wines.

  • If you need to go cheap, buy anything marked Red Rose' (pronounced "rose-ay") at the grocery store. It will be plenty sweet, but you can still drink it with your main course if you want.

    I prefer cabernet sauvignon myself, which is quite tannic but I love it! Walmart has a brand of wine, oak leaf, its super cheap but not bad.
