What do different red wines taste like? With all of the different red wine options out there, which wine should you buy? Is an expensive red wine really that much better than a cheap red wine? Does it really matter which type of red wine you have with which food?

The Sartori DiVerona Pinot Noir 2006 is a nice ruby red color with a hint of purple around the edges. Like the aroma, the flavor of the Sartori DiVerona Pinot Noir is dominated by berries, spices, and vanilla. It's a dry, full-bodied wine with strong tannins. Overall the Sartori DiVerona Pinot Noir 2006 is a decent wine to pair with a variety of foods, though it doesn't have any synergy either.
The Chateau Ste. Michelle Orphelin is a deep, dark purple red and has a thick, velvety appearance when you swirl it in the glass. The Chateau Ste. Michelle Orphelin tastes very fruity and is very approachable for a full-bodied red wine. In fact, it's not nearly as dry as you might imagine and it's not too tannic either.
As with the aromas, the flavors of the Robert Mondavi Vinetta are primary dark berries like blackberries along with black cherries and plum. The texture is smooth and as thick as the wine looks when swirling in the glass and there is a hint of oak in the background. This full-bodied wine has an extended taste, high tannins, and is quite dry.
As with the aromas, the flavors of Bully Hill's Love My Goat are mostly cherry with a bit of plum. This medium-bodied red wine is quite sweet though there is also a lively acidity and soft tannins. It's not at all complex and it feels almost as thick as it looks despite the relatively low alcohol content. Overall the elements of this wine don't hang together or mesh as well as I've found in other inexpensive red wines. Bully Hill's Love My Goat will probably be an acceptable red table wine or cookout wine for most people, but it's strong sweetness combined with its lack of complexity doesn't put it at the top of my list of choices.
The Menage a Trois Red has very fruity, almost jammy flavors dominated by red berries, blackberries, and just a bit of plum. It's has a creamy or velvety texture that helps make it very smooth and enjoyable to drink. It's quite approachable as a drier red wine that is easy to drink either alone or with food. My wife praises it by saying that it's a wine that's 'worth the calories' to drink during the evening. The acidity is relatively soft, medium dry, is full bodied, and has dry tannins. It will probably taste better to most people if you give it a chance to breathe for a bit before drinking.
